Stanford History Education GroupIn 2009, SHEG joined the Library of Congress’s Teaching with Primary Sources Educational Consortium. As part of this new partnership, Joel Breakstone, Mark Smith, and Sam Wineburg led an effort to create document-based formative assessments for teachers. In the fall of 2012, SHEG launched beyondthebubble.stanford.edu, which provides teachers with a new generation of history assessments that incorporate documents from the vast digital archive of the Library of Congress. Today, the Reading Like a Historian curriculum has passed 3.3 million downloads. It is used in all 50 states and in 127 countries. SHEG has expanded beyond U.S. to World history, ventured into the area of formative assessment, and begun to explore how a document-based curriculum can be taught to middle school students. Working with districts from coast to coast, and as far away as Sweden, Singapore, and Chile, our eyes remain fixed on our original goal: providing teachers with high-quality resources to enrich students’ intellectual experience in the history classroom.
