Let's Teach More than Stories.
Karras, Ray W.
OAH Magazine of History, v14 n1 p52-56 Fall 1999
Explains that narrative history is usually the focus in history instruction but contends that argument-based history should be taught instead. Views argumentation as a means for engaging students actively in historical interpretation where the students can express the higher order thinking skills that interpretation entails. Provides examples of both narrative and argument-based history. (CMK)
