Description:

Read the Introduction . "The 22 useful and engaging essays in this book represent leading work in the scholarship of teaching and learning related to history. The collection is a valuable effort. Hopefully these essays will do much to bridge the gap between historians, teacher educators, and teachers."Teaching History "This is not a static voyage; rather, it is one that will take the interested reader on a wonderful journey of discovery and reexamination. . . . Captured within its pages,Knowingprovides an educational framework that anchors the discipline and centers its impact upon society." Canadian Social Studies As issues of history and memory collide in our society and in the classroom, the time is ripe to rethink the place of history in our schools.Knowing, Teaching, and Learning Historyrepresents a unique effort by an international group of scholars to understand the future of teaching and learning about the past. It will challenge the ways in which historians, teachers, and students think about teaching history. The book concerns itself first and foremost with the question, "How do students develop sophisticated historical understandings and how can teachers best encourage this process?" Recent developments in psychology, education, and historiography inform the debates that take place withinKnowing, Teaching, and Learning History. This four-part volume identifies the current issues and problems in history education, then works towards a deep and considered understanding of this evolving field. The contributors to this volume link theory to practice, making crucial connections with those who teach history.
