Filges, Trine; Sonne-Schmidt, Christoffer Scavenius; Nielsen, Bjørn Christian Viinholt – Campbell Collaboration, 2018

Greveling, Linda; Amsing, Hilda T. A.; Dekker, Jeroen J. H. – European Educational Research Journal, 2015
Dutch comprehensive education eventually failed on a political level, despite support from many politicians, labour unions and branches in the educational practice. In the early 1970s denominational political parties strove for a Middle School to provide equal opportunities of all children by postponing school choice. From 1973 onwards, however,…

We analyze an excerpt of a whole-class discussion in history from three theoretical perspectives: interactivity of the discourse, conceptual level raising and historical reasoning. We conclude that using…
