Allen, Rodney F.
Georgia Social Science Journal, v23 n1 p41-47 Spr 1992
Suggests using portraits in history instruction. Uses the story and portrait of Pocahontas to show how expectations can differ from reality. Discusses the role of inference in interpreting what a portrait tells the viewer. Argues that portraits can "soften" social studies instruction and remind students that historical figures were real people. (SG)
