History--It Can Be Elementary: An Overview of Elementary Students' Understanding of History.
Barton, Keith C.
Social Education, v61 n1 p13-16 Jan 1997
Presents two composite and contrasting cases of how elementary school children are taught history. One student receives instruction heavily slanted toward institutional political history, while the other learns these concepts incorporated throughout social history illustrated with different types of learning activities. Suggests workable alternatives for the upper elementary grades. (MJP)
