Layers of Historical Understanding.
Egan, Kieran
Theory and Research in Social Education, v17 n4 p280-94 Fall 1989
Discusses four types of historical understanding and argues for a developmental sequence in historical understanding. Suggests two frameworks: (1) the story-form framework (ages up to 8) and; (2) a romantic framework (ages 8-15), sketching a curriculum based on each. Argues that these forms are necessary for acquiring more sophisticated levels of historical understanding. (SLM)
