What proficiencies should history majors possess when they graduate? What threshold skills should a student bring to the history major? What competencies does a lower-division history course provide as part of a liberal education or a general education program? How can these capabilities and aptitudes be taught in the short class time, constrained circumstances, and diverse classrooms of today’s universities? These are questions that matter deeply to history instructors seeking strategies that embrace the teaching of historical competencies for student success and lifelong achievement and at the same time produce a durable understanding of the lessons and themes that can only come from an appreciation of the past.

Uncovering History is a collection of three digital units for World, Western, and U.S. History that provide tools History instructors can use to teach historical thinking skills. This component-based approach of Uncovering History offers maximum flexibility to instructors in how they assign individual units.
