COR for the History Classroom

Historical misinformation abounds online. Improve students' ability to evaluate historical information on the internet with these curricular materials. These lessons and tasks can be used in a variety of subject areas, but we've compiled this group of materials specifically for history educators because they present students with history-related sources.

Equal Rights Amendment and Hurricane Katrina were written with the history classroom in mind. Students should learn COR skills across the curriculum, and we hope these lessons serve as proof of concept for how history teachers might incorporate Civic Online Reasoning into their classes. We will post more history-related COR materials later this year.
