A Postmodern Endeavor: From History as Representation of "the Past" to Historical Thinking.
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v28 n6 p713-23 Nov-Dec 1996
Advocates adapting a postmodernist approach to history instruction. This would mandate recognizing the subjectivity of all knowledge including the historical record. Recommends embracing this subjectivity and focusing less on history as a subject and more on the development of critical-thinking skills. (MJP)
