Historical Thinking Matters

Historical Thinking MattersHTM provides high school students with a framework that teaches them to read documents like historians. Using these “habits of mind,” they will be able to interrogate historical sources and use them to form reasoned conclusions about the past. Equally important, they will become critical users of the vast historical archives on the web. Historical Thinking Matters equips students to navigate the uncharted waters of the World Wide Web. Historical Thinking Matters was funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
