From the Publisher"Knowing, Teaching, and Learning History examines the current state of history education by exploring the connections between the historical discipline, learning theory, and classroom practice. This interdisciplinary collection of articles addresses recent developments in the theory and practice of history education by scrutinizing how historical narratives are learned and what disciplinary practices and habits of mind facilitate historical understanding. Contributions by historians, teacher educators, educational psychologists, and classroom teachers bridge institutional boundaries and explore history education from elementary schools to university classrooms."
-Loretta Sullivan Lobes,Executive Director, National History Education Network, Carnegie Mellon University

"The 22 useful and engaging essays in this book represent leading work in the scholarship of teaching and learning related to history. The collection is a valuable effort. Hopefully these essays will do much to bridge the gap between historians, teacher educators, and teachers."
"This is not a static voyage; rather, it is one that will take the interested reader on a wonderful journey of discovery and reexamination. . . . Captured within its pages, Knowing provides an educational framework that anchors the discipline and centers its impact upon society."
