Issues and Debates in History Education
This course explores issues and debates in History education, examining both the politics of History education and recent scholarship into the psychology of knowing, teaching and learning History. Specifically, it is concerned with historical revisionism, public memory, and national mythologies, and their role in recent domestic and international history wars and the emergence of an Australian national History curriculum. It will also address the role of historical narrative in the formation of individual, cultural, and national identity; progression in the development of historical literacy; and research into the different ways historians and adolescents interpret historical sources.
