Critical Thinking in United States History uses fascinating original source documents and discussion-based critical thinking methods to help students evaluate conflicting perspectives of historical events. This process stimulates students' interest in history, improves their historical knowledge, and develops their analytical skills for assessment tests.
For each lesson, students examine two or more perspectives of an event using analysis and evaluation skills. Through debating historians' evidence, inferences, analogies, and assumptions, students come away with a deeper understanding of specific events. A separate Instruction/Answer Guide is included!
