Historical Thinking Concepts

Evidence:  How do we know what we know about the past?

Guidepost 1:  History is an interpretation based on inferences made from primary sources.

Guidepost 3:  Analysis includes sourcing: finding out about when and why the source was created and by whom.

Guidepost 4:  A source should be analyzed in relation to its context; the conditions and worldviews prevalent at the time.

Guidepost 5:  Corroborating inferences from a single source with information from other primary or secondary sources is part of evidence analysis.
