About the Historical Thinking Summer Institute

Historical thinking is now a foundation for history and social studies curricula across the country and internationally, and museum and heritage educators are similarly embracing this pedagogical approach for both their exhibits and educational programs. The Historical Thinking Summer Institute (HTSI) is designed for teachers, graduate students, curriculum developers, professional development leaders, historians and museum educators who want to enhance their understanding of historical thinking and their expertise in designing history programs, courses, units, lessons, projects, or educational resources that explicitly focus on historical thinking.

The HTSI is offered in both English and French.
