How can teachers become more comfortable and, eventually, expert in planning, teaching and assessing historical thinking as a regular part of their history classes?  The Historical Thinking Project has provided workshops for teachers for several years in order to assist.  An experienced group of workshop facilitators - with reputations as excellent teachers, along with a deep understanding of the historical thinking concepts - will continue to be available to schools, districts and professional associations.  With the end of the Project, all bookings and arrangements should be made by contacting the facilitators directly.
