Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
The traditional history teaching focusing on political events, gives more emphasis on management and the causes of war in the course of history curricula and textbooks. Changes and diversity in the objectives and methods of history teaching in recent years, brought curricula and textbooks into question in the respect of history. With postmodernist approach to history, the lives of ordinary people started to be a subject in history teaching. Because of this approach, history does not consist only of political history but asserts society and everyday life issues to take their rightful place in this course. In this respect, as everyday lives of women, men and children seen as the subject of the history, social and cultural issues gain importance in history lessons. Thus, these issues not considered in history textbook before have been appreciated in recent years. For this reason, a problem arises how to deal with social and cultural issues and make appropriate changes in the teaching method of history.
