Materials for historical thinking

Materials for historical thinking

  • Presidential Timeline as a way to access organized & digitized primary source archives --& engage in learning activiites

  • Prezi as organizer of historical reasoning (e.g. chronology, priority, categories, and response to ‘big’ question)

  • Voicethread as interactive exchanges of historical reasoning (e.g. asking our students and each other-why is this important)

  • Fakebook Walls and BigHugeLabs as revealing the multiple perspectives (e.g. What would the historical figures of the time think)

    • Weebly website creation tool as Performance task for historical thinking (e.g. a collection of primary sources and document based questions via a web based site that attends to a historical question)


What do we teach and why

What do we teach and why

  • What choices do you make in teaching about the Vietnam War?

  • What must we teach?

  • What guides your choices?

  • Could each table select ONE notion (you can use YouTube) or name of person…that we can add to our canvas of possibilities

  • Link to Prezi so that each TABLE can add notion(s)


What is it that we typically teach and how and why

What is it that we typically teach and how and why

  • A technology integration note--Use Prezi in whole class discussion to note what we value and why we value these elements in our teaching.

  • Prezi is a different presentation format (but similar to power point) that allows for the easier manipulation of ideas.

  • You can organize these ideas via consensus, chronology, priority, category... Your students can make these decisions from themselves too.
