History--Study and teaching (Elementary);
The literature review paper provided reassures the reader that in fact it is beneficial and most importantly, vital to teach historical knowledge to students. Through extensive research, multiple studies confirmed the importance of history instruction in the elementary classroom accompanied with worthwhile, meaningful lessons that allow the students to truly analyze, explore, and internalize the material.
In attempt to provide a quality education for all American students, we must take the following steps: implementing and analyzing more research in regards to history instruction in the elementary classroom; ensure that all educators have an adequate wealth of background knowledge in the area of history; and create and implement a specific national curriculum for all grade levels. When these recommendations are implemented, all American students will hold a plethora of background knowledge that they can apply as they pursue their lifelong dreams and aspirations.
