"I really liked how Obscure Histories can fill an interest gap left by many standard history books. I know that if the students enjoy reading the story, they are more apt to explore for deeper analysis. The website provides really engaging and accessible stories for both the causal reader and for teachers looking for tools to engage students in the study of history. I suggest that other teachers check out all that Obscure Histories has to offer!"

THE BIGGER PROBLEM

Students think history is boring.

You're bored teaching the same stories.

History texts are expensive and difficult to update regularly.

History texts lack content and peripherals that engage students.

History texts lack up-to-date resources for flipped classrooms.
