Abstract

This follow up study, conducted in secondary methods courses, explores a technique for introducing students to historical thinking and historiography using Web 2.0 digital history sources. Wikipedia articles were examined and deconstructed to illustrate the role of evidence and narrative in historical thinking. Students were encouraged to transfer the habits of mind learned in the activity to their analysis of digitized primary and secondary sources.
