Student Inquiry in the History Classroom: A Case Study Approach
MetadataShow full item record
Most students are taught history as a body of author-chosen facts to be memorized. These "facts" are limited by the bias and prejudice of the historian. Students are not given the opportunity to explore, discuss, question, interpret, or attempt to solve the problems, or situations that present themselves in a study of history. The problem studied in this thesis is what kinds of exercises can be employed, through the use of case studies, to promote greater inquiry among students in American history classrooms.
