Experiencing, Using, and Teaching History: Two History Teachers' Relations to History and Educational Media
Thorp, Robert
Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, v9 n2 p129-146 Sep 2017
How do two Swedish secondary school teachers relate to and make sense of history via their experiences and educational media? This article seeks to gain knowledge about history education by analyzing two teachers' narratives of their personal experiences of the Cold War and classroom observations of the teachers in practice. The article finds that the teachers' narrations of personal experiences and observed teaching resemble the dominant historical culture of the Cold War in Swedish education. On this basis, the author discusses the importance of the critical awareness of historical culture in order to further a complex understanding of history.
