Thinking Historically

Mar 17, 2014


This week the folks at the ActiveHistory website are conducting a postmortem on the Historical Thinking Project.

Masterminded by Peter Seixas at UBC, the HTP was an attempt to develop a new approach to teaching history. Late last year the federal government cut off its funding and the project has had to close.

ActiveHistory is running a series of eleven essays about the project, its accomplishments, and the concept of historical thinking itself, starting today.
