Yeager, Elizabeth Anne, and O.L. Davis Jr. “Between Campus and Classroom: Secondary Student-teachers' Thinking about Historical Texts.” Journal of Research and Development in Education 29(1) (1995): 1-8.


This study examined how secondary student teachers in history read and interpreted historical texts, constructed truthful accounts, and approached an epistemology of history. Subjects read and thought about the same eight documents. Results indicated that the nature of student teaching may not lend itself well to reflection on epistemological matters.
