Our goal here at Humanities Mentor is to bring the most comprehensive list of student and teacher available resources possible. To this purpose, we have a number of different pages here at the site which strive to do different things. Below you'll find a general laying out of the essential content of our pages and where to go. Your time is precious to us, so if anyone has suggestions as to how we might better organize content in the future, please let us know and be a part of our growth.
Resources: Student Resources, Writing Workshop & Language Center
These pages mark three core locations for content. Study/ Research Resources is a hodge-podge of different general resources, most of which are located right on the Internet. Some speak to broadly described fields such as history and philosophy, while others deal with proper citation and research skills. There are also expanding resources for teachers as well. Writing Skills Workshop has some of our own pointers partnered up with useful links to other writing-related sites and resources to help you pen the best product. The Language Center provides some general language-learning resource suggestions along with an ever growing catalog of sites targeting skills in specific languages.
Content Pages: Lessons & Resources
We have a list of content pages (history, philosophy, etc.) that target more specific topics or subjects which are usually identified either regionally or chronologically. For the researcher who already has a good idea what they're after, these are the places to go. Content is usually divided into resources (links to Internet archives --often university -- dedicated to pertinent subject matter) and our own tutorials or lessons aimed at guiding students through the fundamentals of a given subject matter as an assistance for paper or test preparation.
When looking at the tutorials, those that appear in red are currently offered while any which appear in black will be available shortly. We post newly arrived lessons on both Facebook and Twitter so stay tuned. In cases where tutorials do not yet appear, we're working hard to supply them. For more info on lessons or tutorials see below.
As with all our content and subject matter, we welcome suggestions which help us add to our growing resource son each page, so please contact us with potential additions.
Humanities Mentor tutorials or lessons are meant as conversational, accessible articles designed to help students at junior high, high school and introductory university levels. The lesson is customarily presented with a title, the number which the lesson occupies in a specific series, and the title in the form of a hyperlink. Simply click the link to be routed to the Hub Pages format where the article is located. It will usually appear as follows.
Origins of the American Revolution 2: Influence of the French and Indian War
While general readers may want to pick and choose the order of reading, we do encourage that students trying to command the subject better follow them in the order given under each sub-category, i.e. Roman Republican Political History 1, 2, 3. Our writers try to provide continuum and attention to major themes in the subject matter. Difficulty levels may vary slightly, depending on topic. For example, a basic overview of Greek history may differ in difficulty level from a lesson on an advanced component of Aristotle's thought.
We hope the following prove helpful and engaging! And remember, we're always working on more. For immediate or one-on-one tutoring needs, please consider our services. As always, we encourage feedback, so leave comments either at the bottom of the lesson page or with our email. If a lesson title is offered on one of our without a hyperlink, that means that it is going to be added extremely soon.
