A Morning in Damascus

<p><em></em>This collection features a series of three independent activities around one singular portrait of Bayard Taylor (formally titled <em>A Morning in Damascus)</em> painted by Thomas Hicks, 1855.  Taylor was one of America's foremost and most popular travel writers of the mid to late 19th century.  </p> <p>These activities were created for my Advanced Placement World History course to practice close reading skills as well as historical thinking skills.  The notations provided here are for teacher reference and would not be given to students. </p> <p><em>This collection was created in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery's 2017 Learning to Look Summer Teacher Institute.</em><br /></p> <p>#NPGTeach </p><p><em>#historicalthinking</em></p>
