  1. Hello Harry,
    I was discussing the concept of Hinge questions in History with Dylan William last week, and he passed me your name. We have been thinking about them in our dept., and see significant potential for student learning if they are of high quality, although there are also difficulties.
    I’d be interested to share what we have so far & see how far it correlates with your own thinking. I could not access your link on this.
    Please let me know if you are interested & I look forward to hearing from you soon.
    Kind Regards,
