Objectives

  • By learning about how archives are organised, students will understand the main tools for historical research, and the skills use them well. (Goal 4)
  • By trying to make sense of slides that no one has documented before, students will practice skills to solve historical problems including the analysis and interpretation of historical documents, and the ability to make distinctions in the face of complex questions. (Goal 5)
  • By doing this in the same document as the whole class, students will practice good ways to work collaboratively. (Goal 11)
