Take the lead in preparing your students to succeed. Whether you’ve been teaching your history course for one year or thirty, you’ve probably noticed that many of your students lack the core skills to be successful in your course. How often do students sit in class without ever picking up a pen or pencil to take notes? How often have you received the first batch of short papers only to find that many students do not know how to approach a basic writing assignment? How much time do you spend helping students with the fundamentals, such as understanding what plagiarism is, how to study for exams, or how to read a text for meaning?     

Bedford Tutorials for History is a collection of brief units, each 16 pages long and loaded with examples, that guide your students through basic skills needed for success in their history courses, freeing you to spend your class time focusing on content and interpretation. Choose one or two of the tutorials and add them to your history textbook at no additional cost.
