Historiography from below: How Undergraduates Remember Learning History at School
Collins, Marcus
Teaching History, n142 p34-38 Mar 2011
What do our students make of the history that we teach them? As part of an introductory module on historiography, Marcus Collins asked his undergraduate students to analyse the history that they had been taught at school and college using historiographic concepts. The results make for interesting reading. What do students make of national political history? Are there advantages in studying the same topics at GCSE and AS/A2? Collins' analysis provides fresh insight into many topics that are currently debated. We have a lot to learn from our students and ex-students. (Contains 1 figure.)
