What is the
History Tours Project
is a collaborative website that gives teachers access to pre-made
tours on various topics in American and World history. These tours provide an excellent backdrop for visual learning. They allow students to view people and places of historical importance while the teacher presents essential background knowledge.
Teachers are encouraged to submit their own work or save a copy of the tours posted by the page organizers. There is also a discussion section where teachers can post ideas and/or provide feedback. Creating a history tour is an excellent example of a project-based assessment that promotes higher order thinking skills. All teacher and student generated tours can be considered for inclusion on the wikispace.
