The History Department at Wood Middle School offers a comprehensive study of various history subjects.  Some of the key techniques and strategies the instructors use are group reading and discussion; a technique called Think-Pair-Share (an activity where a question is posed to students that they must consider alone and then discuss with a neighbor before settling on a final answer, providing student motivation and promoting higher-level thinking);  visual/artistic interpretation of historical concepts and cause-effect links; text interpretation and summarization; imaginative exploration of perspective on different world events; comparative historical analysis of cultural features of civilization; and a focus on historical thinking skills.  The History Department seeks to develop the students’ critical thinking in a historical context including interpretation of primary sources and consideration of multiple perspectives on events.
