New Beyond the Bubble History Assessments of Thinking
Check out our four new Beyond the Bubble history assessments of thinking (HATs). Each assesses students' content knowledge and historical thinking skills.
The assessments are designed to be used formatively. Each follows the same format and taps the same historical thinking skills but presents different documents about which students must reason.
The U.S.-China Relations HAT gauges students' knowledge of how and why the relationship between the United States and China changed from World War II to the early Cold War and their ability to place historical sources in time. Sample student responses are included in the rubric.
Measure students' understanding of how economics affected federal policies on Mexican migration during the Great Depression and World War II with our U.S. Policies on Mexican Migration HAT.
The Federal Labor Relations HAT asks students to contextualize labor history documents. How did the federal government respond to the Pullman Strike of 1894 versus the Anthracite Coal Strike of 1902?
Assess students' knowledge of federal policies on Native American lands with our Tribal Land Policies HAT. Can students place an advertisement for the sale of Native American land in the period of allotment and assimilation? Can they contextualize a newspaper article related to the "Indian New Deal"?
