Barton, Keith C.
Comparative Education, v37 n1 p89-106 Feb 2001
Interviews with 154 elementary school students in Northern Ireland and the United States found that students in both countries were very interested in history and learned about history from family and the media, as well as school. However, the two groups of students had different views on the importance of history and reasons for studying it. (Contains 43 references.) (SV)
