Beyond the Bubble: History Assessments of Thinking

Educators, particularly teachers in history departments, may enjoy Beyond the Bubble. Created by the Stanford History Education Group, this resource uses the Library of Congress's digital archives to generate a series of History Assessments of Thinking (HATs). HATs consist of short videos, images, or other lesson accompaniments and corresponding assessments that shift students' focus from fact recollection to critical thinking. For example, students may be asked to compare two documents and use their historical knowledge and context clues to determine which document was written first. Users should begin by creating a free account to gain full access to the materials. From there, you may want to browse the complete list of HATs, which range in topic from the First Thanksgiving to the Haitian Revolution. Each HAT comes with a student worksheet and a rubric guide, both downloadable with a free account. Educators may also find value in the "Going Deeper" videos, which provide additional tips and context for using this resource to assist students' learning.
