Next year I've decided to really focus in on skills as opposed to trivial facts with my history classes. I've always tried to do this but in really evaluating myself I still have tilted toward to the "make sure they know stuff" side of things instead of the "make sure they know how to know stuff" side. So, I'm trying to make a list of skills a historian uses or should have. I'm trying to keep them to one-word titles for simplicity's sake. On each assignment we do I want to be able to point out which of these skills are required or will be built up by it. So far I have: Research (looking stuff up) Analysis (interpreting information) Technology (using a computer to retrieve or present findings) Recreate (use art to remake past events or objects) Empathy (put yourself in another person's shoes) What else might one add?
