Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Children use their prior knowledge of language and background of experiences when they read literature selections. As they progress into the upper elementary grade levels, this knowledge and experience become increasingly important in the content areas. Since the study of history involves knowledge of past events, it is profitable for children to have the ability to generate intellectually the necessary background that is missing and to supplement and expand their knowledge beyond the covers of the textbook.
