  6. 6. Citizen History at USHMM - History Unfolded
  7. 7. History Unfolded Project Evaluation ● Formal IRB approved and led by external evaluator ● Surveyed over 100 high school and university students during 2018-2019 school year ● Conducted follow up interviews with over 30 students ● Focused on student motivation, appreciation for the historical process, and understanding of the Holocaust
  8. 8. Evaluation Results from History Unfolded
  9. 9. Evaluation Results from History Unfolded Students also reported significant increases regarding their participation in the historical process as a personally meaningful endeavor that contributes to the historical record (n=130).
  10. 10. Evaluation Results from History Unfolded Students said that after participating in History Unfolded, they were significantly more familiar with Americans’ awareness of and response to the Holocaust during the 1930s-40s (n=130).
  11. 11. Americans’ awareness of the Holocaust Prior to working on this project, I always just assumed that Americans were pretty unaware of the events going on in Germany...I just thought it was interesting that Americans were actually, a lot of them knew what had happened and it was just often overshadowed by events in their hometown than events across the ocean. — High school student
  12. 12. The United States did not to intervene I thought before History Unfolded that we didn't know that much about it until we were actually in the war, but seeing the different newspapers, I see snippets of what stuff was reported .... That kind of changed my views on America's involvement--we could have done something, but we didn’t.—College student
  13. 13. Challenges for Citizen History ● Staff time intensive - requires dedicated team with a variety of skills ● Technology intensive ○ the more complex the project, the more the technology will need to be tailored to the work. ○ The better the technology works, the better the results. ● Tension between education and research goals
  14. 14. Lessons from our experience ● Participants ARE learning history ○ Understanding primary sources ○ Appreciating historical process ○ Learning about specific history ● The Research is Valuable to the Museum ● Participants see value in their work and feel a connection to the Museum
