Ten engaging questions and historic documents empower students to be the historian in the classroom. The units draw from a fascinating collection of text and multimedia content – documents, posters, photographs, audio, video, letter and other ephemera. “Stop-and-think” prompts based on CCSS skills guide students through analysis of the primary and secondary sources. Essential questions foster critical thinking. All documents include links back to the original source material so readers can remix the content into their own curated collections

It’s a great resource for use in the classroom, and it serves as a model for teacher or student curation of historic content into interactive digital DBQ’s. For more on the content design, click here. For more on how we used iBooks Author, click here.
