A wonderful, comprehensive look that not only establishes expectations, but also teaches valuable historical analysis skills. 

Contains great examples for every point it makes, visually appealing (especially the portion dealing with source analysis).

Content rich presentation, that does not talk down to readers and allows multiple opportunites to test comprehension.

Technical Remarks:

Functional, fluid, Kiosk-style PowerPoint. highly recommended for students learning about the first tier of historical analyisis in either middle school or high school.

Great information on how to study history.  The video in the presentation is clear and will help the students.

I really link this StAIR! The infusion of the various media along with an explanation is very useful! The varied formats used for practice were also great! Additionally how to study is a VERY valuable and often overlooked skill set which needs to be taught! A change I would suggect is possibly a google doc or something where the students can turn in the assignments online so the StAIR's not completely tied to the classroom and the students have the ability to do this outside of class.
