Abstract

There are extensive traditions of international research focused on developing thinking in history, however, research tends often to focus on students’ historical thinking more than on their metahistorical thinking. Drawing on historical theory and on research into children’s thinking (LEE, 2001; CHAPMAN, 2009) and on teaching intervention studies (CHAPMAN, 2010, CHAPMAN, ET AL., 2012; CHAPMAN & GOLDSMITH, 2015), this paper argues for the importance of a metahistorical approach to historical learning in order to help young people develop sophisticated understandings of historical debates and controversies and in order to provide them with the intellectual tools that they will need to think critically about historiography in the academy and, perhaps, more broadly.
