    Reproducible for One Classroom

    A thinking approach to learning history. Makes history fresh, relevant, and real!

    Description & Features

    Critical Thinking in United States History uses fascinating original source documents and discussion-base critical thinking methods to help students evaluate conflicting perspectives of historical events. This process stimulates students' interest in history, improves their historical knowledge, and develops their analytical skills for assessment tests.


    For each lesson, students examine two or more perspectives of an event using analysis and evaluation skills such as identifying types of reasoning and evaluating sources. Through debating historians' evidence, inferences, analogies, and assumptions, students come away with a deeper understanding of specific events. They also learn to examine any historical, or current, event with a more critical mind.
