History from Children's Perspectives: Learning to Read and Write Historical Accounts Using Family Sources
Schmidt, Maria Auxiliadora; Garcia, Tania Maria F. Braga
Education 3-13, v38 n3 p289-299 Aug 2010
This paper presents the results of an investigation which was part of a project called "Recreating Histories". It is concerned with the analysis of historical narratives created by the children who participated in the project and an analysis of historical sources kept by families who live in Campina Grande do Sul (Brazil). It draws on the theoretical and methodological approaches of Artieres, Freire, and Rusen, the work of researchers into history education, Ashby, Cooper, Barca, and Lee, and of the authors of this project, Schmidt and Garcia. (Contains 3 tables.)
