A high school social studies teacher and an instructional coach endeavor to convert a Title 1 Social Studies curriculum to incorporate historical thinking skills, instructional technology, and the new WI Social Studies inquiry based standards. The goal is to develop assessments that push students to think critically, solve problems, and develop historical inquiry skills. This session will demonstrate how these teachers developed primary source analysis skills that better reflected student abilities by using tools such as Britannica LaunchPacs, Reading Like a Historian, and Google Tools for Education.
