• In order to become historically literate, students need regular practice in using both the language and skills of the discipline. The Stanford History Education Group's Reading Like a Historian curriculum is a research based, systematic approach that guides students and teachers through the process of becoming historically literate, all while meeting the demands required by the Common Core State Standards.
