Better Ways To Tell Our Story: A Critique of the Proposed National History Standards.
Puddington, Arch
This paper examines the content of the proposed national standards for U.S. history and world history. The document suggests shortcomings of the developed standards as being without an emphasis on the themes of democracy and western civilization and an overemphasis on multicultural ideas. Specific standards in each of the areas are addressed with noted weaknesses within each area. The standards debate, according to the paper, may ultimately make a contribution to the educational reform process and the strengthening of history teaching. (EH)
