Half teacher training, and half useful lessons, is book is a MUST buy for any history teacher.
Some flaws are that there are only a couple of lessons for each concept, and there are no clear assessment tools ( rubrics, etc). Most of the lessons need to be adapted for my classroom, although the e maples are helpful and guidelines.
Speaking of guidelines,the " guideposts" for each concept tell the look- for's as far s student understanding, which is helpful when creating a marking scheme or rubric.
I have been using the materials in this book for some time now, by using the historicalthinking.ca website along with the preview chapter. Because of this, I had to get the entire book.
It is quite amazing what I have been able to achieve by using the ideas offered here. I have C+ students attaining a level of thinking that I never would have thought possible. I am also able to really push my high achieving students in ways that surprise them. Using the ideas in this book takes adjustment, but the materials here will push any teacher to do better.
