Historical Research

Mastery objective: Students will be able to explore and explain multiple resources for historical research, analyze and evaluate the effectiveness and credibility of resources, and navigate history-related online databases via a mobile device.  

  • Research in history - How do we learn history? What do we need?
  • Print sources - What types of print sources would work for your project?
  • Online Databases & eBooks for historical research - How to access?  What information do they contain?
  • Websites - "Good" vs. "Bad" websites for historical research
  • History lives on your smartphone or iPad!

Theme to take from today:  History is alive and the resources we use to study it will illustrate the dynamic nature of history!!
