The Historical Subject Matter that Ultimately Matters Most.
Whelan, Michael
Theory and Research in Social Education, v25 n4 p506-10 Fall 1997
Discusses the need for content-method realignment in social studies education by focusing on the content of social studies, particularly history. Addresses three issues: (1) history is a matter of assigning meaning to facts; (2) the significance of historical knowledge varies; and (3) the historical knowledge of greatest social value is generalizable knowledge.
