Aimed to determine social studies teachers’ views on the skill of using evidence, the study employed the phenomenology design, one of the qualitative research designs. The study group consisted of a total of 20 social studies teachers, 9 female and 11 male, who were working in the city center of Elazig city center during the spring semester of the 2019-2020 academic year. The study group was determined on a voluntary basis using convenience sampling, which is one of the purposeful sampling strategies. The study data were collected by interview technique using a semi-structured interview form, and the data were analyzed with the content analysis method. According to the study results, social studies teachers referred to the skill of using evidence as the ability to use resources and stated that using evidence may affect the development of skills such as analysis, reasoning, research, critical thinking, and historical empathy. The study revealed that teachers made use of different methods and techniques and used various types of evidence for students to gain this skill. While making students gain the skill of using evidence, teachers experienced some problems such as the evidence not being appropriate to the student level, inability to access evidence, permission, and cost. Teachers expressed that in order for students to gain the skill of using evidence effectively it is important to make the student active, to prefer more audio-visual evidence, to consider the level of student development, and to use different methods and techniques more. Based on these results, attention should be paid to ensure that the chosen evidence is appropriate for the student level and the student should be active.
