How To

You can use this survey in different ways. Here are three possibilities:

1. To help plan your curriculum at the start of a term

  • Use HistoryConcepts to examine where your students’ ideas are before you teach.

2. To gauge the effectiveness of your curriculum

  • By surveying a class multiple times, HistoryConcepts gives you a way to examine how your curriculum is influencing students’ ideas about differing historical accounts.

3. To compare different classes, and differentiate curriculum

  • You can use HistoryConcepts to understand which classes are ready to engage in particular historical thinking activities, by looking at a breakdown of students’ ideas in each class.
