VanSledright, Bruce; Brophy, Jere
American Educational Research Journal, v29 n4 p837-59 Win 1992
Historical accounts by fourth graders at the beginning stage of learning history show that these young students lack an experience-based framework for grounding and connecting historical teaching. Implications for teaching history to elementary school students and aspects of children's reliance on imagination in constructing historical narratives are discussed. (SLD)
