Sought and Found: Adolescents'"Ideal" Historical Conceptions as Unveiled by Concept Mapping.
Pomson, Alex D. M.; Hoz, Ron
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v30 n3 p319-37 May-Jun 1998
Describes the use of cognitive mapping to identify historical conceptions by examining whether adolescents' historical knowledge can be characterized according to distinctions between critical and traditional orientations. Presents three "ideal conceptions'" of Jewish history: (1) theological; (2) sociological; and (3) critical/historical. Finds that students' conceptions of history are neither traditional nor critical. (CMK)
