Fournier, Janice E.; Wineburg, Samuel S.
American Journal of Education, v105 n2 p160-85 Feb 1997

Results reveal boys and girls differed across task and historical role as well as in their depictions. Discusses what these findings say regarding students' beliefs about history and the curricular implications. (GR)
