Historical Thinking Matters is a website brought to you by donations from the Flora Hewlett Foundation and Carnegie Corporation of New York and compiled by a team of well-educated individuals. The Historical Thinking Matters site states it is, “a website focused on key topics in US history, that is designed to teach students how to critically read primary sources and how to critique and construct historical narratives.”  Topics are limited to the Spanish American War, the Scopes Trial, Social Security, and Rosa Parks, but the resources listed in those areas are pretty awesome. Each topic has lesson plans, worksheets, materials, student examples, standards and more.
