"Holding a coin that was held by ancient Greeks or Romans connects students to the ancient world in a way that a history textbook cannot."

“As a result of the History in Your Hands Foundation, my students started to identify bias and in early map making.  My students no longer see historical maps as objective information but rather as tools to promote an agenda.  Recognizing the point of view, purpose and audience of these maps will make my students more critical readers and consumers of contemporary media as well."
