The purpose of this lesson is to get students excited about history class! Students will understand that history is not just about accumulating and memorizing facts and dates, but rather it is about interpretation and critical thinking. The lesson itself is fairly simple yet engaging. There is a quick "knowledge vs thinking" video at the beginning, followed by a quote analysis group activity that requires students to work in small groups with a quote related to historical thinking. Students answer questions about their quotes and then share their answers with the class. The teacher can then use their answers as a springboard to larger class discussions.
All materials, including detailed lesson plan, 19-slide PPT with embedded video, printable quotes for the group activity, and suggested answers and talking points for the teacher are all included. This lesson is a perfect way to promote a growth mindset in history students by changing their perception of history as a boring, content-driven subject into an active and critically engaging skill.
