8. Interpretation

- The ability to describe, analyze, evaluate, and construct diverse interpretations of the past, and being aware of how particular circumstances and contexts in which individual historians work and write also shape their interpretation of past events. It requires analyzing evidence, reasoning, determining the context, and evaluating points of view found in both primary and secondary sources.

9. Synthesis

- The ability to develop meaningful and persuasive new understandings of the past by applying all of the other historical thinking skills, by drawing appropriately on ideas and methods from different fields of inquiry or disciplines, and by creatively fusing disparate, relevant, and sometimes contradictory evidence from primary sources and secondary works. Synthesis may involve applying insights about the past to other historical contexts or circumstances, including the present.
