When Freshmen Write History: Text and Subtext.
Ramsay, John G.
Social Studies Journal, v18 p16-21 Spr 1989
Reviews a college freshmen history seminar project in which students wrote, illustrated, and prepared a U.S. history textbook on the 1950s and 1960s. Reflecting on the resulting text, Ramsay questions whether students succumbed to the didactic fallacy; and cites a lack of cohesiveness, but praises the project's value as a teaching exercise. (LS)
