Historical Investigations Portal

Allow us to do the teaching for you instead of copying pages of primary sources and struggling to explain historical thinking skills like sourcing and corroboration!

 HIP! is our e-portal that offers computer-based, interactive historical investigations that allow students to analyze and synthesize multiple primary source documents, images, and objects to draw evidence-based conclusions about compelling historical questions.

“I really am impressed with the manner in which you have taken the MdHS into the digital age.  The HIP portal will really be a tremendously useful tool for teachers.”
