Abstract

CASAL, Silvana. Learning History in Secondary School: the Case of Morelia, Michoacan (Mexico). RMIE [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.48, pp. 73-105. ISSN 1405-6666.

This article presents a diagnosis of the teaching/learning process in three general secondary schools in Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico. We centered on history classes in secondary school and followed up on student learning and teacher performance. We interviewed 500 students in the three grades of secondary school, and then selected fifty of these students at random group for an interview to reinforce and study certain aspects in depth. We also interviewed most of the teachers, in order to compare their answers and reach clearer conclusions. The samples represent the three schools and all of their history teachers.
