History Curriculum

Further enrich history lessons by integrating the language of decision making

The Decision Education Foundation (DEF) developed this curriculum to bring the study of US history alive as well as providing students with important tools and skills that are critical, but not commonly taught. Using a decision focused approach to the study of history can enhance the students’ experience and learning at the same time as helping students develop greater capacity to chart their path in life. A randomized study of incorporating decision skills in US History classrooms showed improvements in both academic scores and decision making competence.
