Introduction to Historical Thinking: Working With Evidence

posted Aug 20, 2015, 2:18 PM by Kevin Zahner
History involves interpretation, which means historians can and do disagree. 
*What should we do when our sources disagree?


1. Your Future You -- survey, share results with neighbor, write paragraph summarizing two similarities and two differences between you and your neighbor.

2. Scavenger Hunt -- complete the data collection on three areas of the school (courtyard, library, cafeteria), share with class for discussion.

3. Three Little Pigs -- make notes on the board about the story we commonly accept, read the Wolf's Story, make a graphic organizer with the similarities and differences between the Wolf's story and the commonly accepted version. 

*This activity will be finished next class.
