History Standards

This is my current attempt at a set of detailed standards for my 9th-grade history class. This is very much a work in progress, and I’m posting them here in the hopes of starting a conversation in which I might learn something. My basic principles in drawing up these standards were:  they should reflect skills or habits of mind that might reasonably be expected to develop over the course of a school year, they should be fundamentally important to doing history, and they should be things I can measure routinely in the course of a quarter. I think there are too many of these, but I’m still thinking it over!
