The purpose of this project is to package existing online resources on into easy-to-use toolkits for educators in secondary classrooms, community colleges, universities, museums, and informal education settings. Content will be arranged into inquiry-based topics in Wyoming history with each instructional module to include primary and secondary sources designed to engage students to think like historians.

Graduate students from the University of Wyoming History or American Studies programs, under supervision from the UW College of Education Assistant Professor Mark Helmsing, designed materials for coherent standards-based classroom use for trial during the 2016-2017 school year.
