I absolutely love the book Teaching About Historical Thinking! I have an Arts Degree in History and an Education Degree majoring in Social Studies, yet this book has completely revolutionized my understanding of teaching historical thinking! I would highly recommend it! Every teacher should have a copy!

…thoughtful, insightful, clear, and well written…Teaching About Historical Thinking will…be of great assistance to my teacher candidates as they come to terms with critical thinking and teaching history.

Teaching about Historical Thinking” is REALLY good – clear, teacher friendly, lots of valuable strategies, and most important honouring what it means to “do history”.
