These are 5 visually detailed and full color posters (8.5 x 11 and 17×24) designed to reinforce Historical Thinking skills and Critical Thinking skills in your classroom. They also provide an easy way to decorate your classroom! I find myself pointing to these posters all the time to help students with the definitions.

These posters discuss five historical thinking or reasoning skills – Sourcing, Point-of-View, Purpose, Context and Intended Audience.
