This is a most impressive scheme. I love its elegance, efficiency, and communicability.

Professor Peter Seixas, Director of The Historical Thinking Project

The 4QM workshop gave our whole department a clear and practical framework for talking about what content will be included and where as we launch our curriculum review. Teachers responded very positively, and we are using the 4QM framework to guide our review and revision process.

4QM Teaching led a summer workshop with our high school history department that transformed the way they think about planning and teaching. The teachers loved it, and have embraced follow up coaching and workshops as a key element in a cycle of continuous improvement.

[The Four Question Method] makes history more clear and helps me think.

Tenth Grade Student

The Four Question Method has dramatically impacted both my own teaching and my coaching of the history teachers I supervise. The 4QM helps me to recognize why lessons go well or go poorly, and gives me a way to explain that clearly so that teachers can improve quickly.

Jennifer Morrill, History Department Chair, Newton South HS

I 've started liking history a lot more! I used to have to study for hours and hours for tests, but now that I am actually taught the subjects, rather than just memorizing them, I have been much more successful and enjoy the subject.

The way of using the storyboard as a limiting structure is brilliant...Structuring the unit questions as you do naturally provides scaffolding and incorporates critical thinking and differentiation naturally within the process.

As a new teacher (with little history background) I found this really beneficial. I often struggle with ‘what’s important’ and get hung up on facts. I backward plan, but still struggle. I think this strategy will help my planning immensely.
