NCSS Beyond the Bubble

Beyond the Bubble accesses 21st century skills with Primary Source Documents.

This resource has amazing information on creating common core aligned assessments that:

  • balance knowledge of content and historical thinking.
  • ask students to apply content knowledge rather than reproduce it.
  •  ask students to consider content in ways that require thought, judgment, and deep understanding.
  • Take only a few minutes and are easy to score
  • Come with rubrics and samples of student work
  • Promote academic literacy
  • Provide windows into students’ thinking

I hope to use this resource by improving student historical thinking and evaluation of primary source evidence. I hope to use this tool in collaboration with the Library of Congress Common Core Search Tool.
