In this first element of the Framework, students and teachers work to collect and organize data and information. This usually means strategies and resources for helping students gather the necessary information for thinking historically, answering questions, and solving problems.

what might this look like?

Using graphic organizers and primary source analysis worksheets to make sense of raw data are examples of strategies students could use during this stage of the Framework. The use of Dropbox or EasyBib to organize collected data would also be a great example of the Collect element.

Teachers can also take advantage of the Collect element when they browse to sites such as Teaching History, ThinkFinity or Ted-Ed.
