On the Historical Narrative in the Classroom and Its Measure of Interest
Vansover, Yaron
Theory and Research in Education, v11 n3 p280-293 Nov 2013
This article examines the narrative structure used by Israeli history teachers in their lessons. The investigation makes use of the analytical tools of narratology, employing the constitutive narratological distinction between "fabula" and "szujet." It becomes clear that the narrative structure which teachers of history commonly use impedes their ability to prepare lessons which interest their pupils. The article proposes that history teachers adopt a different narrative structure, which may captivate their pupils and arouse greater interest in learning history.
