Description

An introduction of the 8 skills used by historians to actually "do" history. With the move toward Common Core I have evaluated what it really means to students to be a historian. It is not just memorization of facts and dates but instead is a collection of skills (just like in math or science) used to reach a greater truth or understanding. I have simplified those skills to be understood by middle school students.

For this history skills activity the skills are:
Analyze
Research
Technology
Writing
Recreate
Organize
Empathy
Connect

Included in this PowerPoint activity are a short assignment for students to complete to help understand the meaning of each skill and a 8.5 x 11 sized image for each of the 8 skills suitable for printing and hanging in the classroom. I believe that these 8 skills are used in every history classroom and by every historian. Making them understandable to younger students is the key to advancing history instruction.
