Reading like a Historian: Stanford University

This Stanford University site has some great resources on teaching history with primary resources. Here is a description of a new part of the site that I coped directly: Reading Like a Historian, a project developed in tandem with the San Francisco Unified School District, is a high school history curriculum that is literacy-rich and document-based. It focuses on core content, critical thinking, and improving reading comprehension. This curriculum draws on over 20 years of research on historical thinking and educational practice. Since being put on the Web in 2010, the curriculum has been downloaded over 200,000 times.
