Thinking Like a Historian is the fruit of our thinking and practice grounded in the highest standards of the discipline–designed to stimulate your own thinking, planning, and teaching. Adapt or draw inspriration from the examples for engaging and effective lessons and classroom activities. Return again and again to the common language of Thinking Like a Historian as a foundation that can connect and develop students’ curiosity about and understand of history throughout their school years. As history educators we wholeheartedly embrace the responsibility and opportunity to guide the next generation to think more deeply about the past–to think like historians.
