Historical Thinking! We are historians! We are investigators! We are storytellers!
Ever heard a history teacher say that before? I didn't.
In our class this year, we will be learning to think historically. This requires students to put themselves into the actual time period, event, battle, convention, or person that had to make the decision in history.
Why historical thinking matters is a video that shows what historical thinking is and the process students go through to learn and fine tune this skill.
Historical thinking is a skill that will be used every day of their lives. From treatment of people in their lives, to the decisions they make about charity, to the voting booth, students will use this skill every day for the rest of their lives!
