History in Classrooms.
Thornton, Stephen J.
OAH Magazine of History, v2 n2 p6-8,14 1987
Maintains that history, as a school subject, cannot be reformed without an understanding of classroom life and the institutional norms of schooling. Identifies three problems in history teaching: trying to cover too much, the related problem of overuse of dull expository instruction, and failure to receive sustained feedback on teaching. Provides four suggestions for improving history instruction. (JDH)
