Summary

Habits of History are the qualities that professional historians use constantly when examining questions, concerns, or topics of history. These are essential habits for me to develop to begin to approach the study of history as a historian. All of these habits can be applied to most subjects that I am enrolled in, and will be critical if I want to become an informed decision maker.
