Product Description
This product is a basic guide for teachers to use design thinking to solve historical problems. In this five stage activity, teachers facilitate the design thinking process (based on Stanford's design school) to help boost content knowledge and 21st century skills. This activity can be used in a variety of different grade levels and all subsets of history. Simply choose a historical document, event, blunder, tragedy etc. that you would already study (Ex: weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation), and guide students through the process of identifying problems, brainstorming and designing solutions, building a prototype (which in the example of the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation could be an idea) and sharing or testing their prototype with an audience.

This document is meant to serve as a guide for Historical Design Thinking but may also be used as a student handout.
