Teacher Resources

The Teacher Resources in the sidebar can help educators organize their syllabi, create new assignments, and prepare students for the work ahead.

The Style Guide and Citation Guide help to ensure that episodes in the cumulative database are formatted in a uniform way. Students should consult these guides while they write and edit their own episodes, and peer review the work of their fellow classmates. Students can also find online editions of these guides under Writing.

Librarians and archivists are essential to the History Engine project. They help to maintain rigorous academic standards for the episodes and can lead students toward previously untapped resources. To give librarians and archivists a sense of the mission of the History Engine and outline their important role in the project, consider giving them the Librarian Guide in the sidebar or crafting your own version of this handout.
