The Methods and Skills of History is a methods text that combines theory with "hands on" practice. It teaches students the nature of historical thinking and helps them strengthen critical and communication skills that are basic to success in academics and success in a career.

Each chapter provides brief introductory overviews followed by one or more exercises. The essays and exercises are meant not so much to teach sophisticated research skills as to make the study of history more meaningful for the student. Most important, this book, which requires an active engagement by the student, will appeal to all teachers who like to help students deliver, rather that just absorb.
