Consensus and Difference: American Students' Perspectives on the National History
Dan, Yongjun; Todd, Reese; Lan, William
Education, v131 n2 p331-341 Win 2010
The purpose of this study was to re-examine the consensus and difference in American students' understanding of national history, on which there were divergent research results. With three sets of questions that examined students' perspectives of the collective memory, historical significance, and credibility of historical sources, we found that American students exhibit double identities in learning the national history.
