Flashcard Content Overview

The job of a historian is so much more complex than simply reading about the past! A good historian must move beyond reading and start interpreting the past! This flashcard set will not only help you be a better social studies teacher, but will also help your students be better historians. You will review important social studies terms, such as secondary source and cause and effect as well as social studies teaching methods, such as differentiation.
