Stanford History Education Group
(SHEG). One of the important historical thinking skills SHEG reinforces and Wineburg spoke about was sourcing. In today's digital age this is a necessary skill to teach our students as they sort through troves of information on the internet.
is a great site Wineburg mentioned in his keynote.
