Ten engaging questions and historic documents empower students to be the historian in the classroom. The units draw from a fascinating collection of text and multimedia content - documents, posters, photographs, audio, video, letter and other ephemera. "Stop-and-think" prompts based on CCSS skills guide students through analysis of the primary and secondary sources. Essential questions foster critical thinking. All documents include links back to the original source material so readers can remix the content into their own curated collections


Designed by graduate and undergraduate history education students at the University of Portland under the direction of nationally recognized history educator - Peter Pappas. It's a great resource for use in the classroom, and it serves as a model for teacher or student curation of historic content into interactive digital DBQ's

    Amazing Work

    Peter has written many books already about history. I was excited to see his students begin the process. I haven't read the entire book yet but I am already impressed with the amount of thought that went into it. Peter's students did a great job analyzing questions by finding examples. This book is an amazing compilation of videos, photos and documents. Great job. I'm looking forward to finishing the book and sharing this with my colleagues. Keep up the great work.
