Writing in History

Project Description:

Developing students’ abilities in historical reasoning is an important goal in history education. Historical reasoning can be displayed among others in writing. In this project we combine our expertise in historical reasoning and writing, in order to gain more insight in effective ways to improve students’ historical reasoning in writing.
Since writing in history puts high demands on students, more insight is needed in how to support students while writing. We investigate the effects of different kind of instructions to improve students’ writing in history. In addition to text quality, we are also interested in writing processes.
