Right for the Wrong Reasons. National History Standards.
Whelan, Michael
Social Education, v60 n1 p55-57 Jan 1996
Criticizes the very notion of national standards for history. Maintains that the interpretative nature of historical study does not lend itself to the establishment of a single set of curricular standards. Argues that the most effective means of improving history instruction is to improve education for history teachers. (MJP)
