Abstract [en]

Progress in research into Teaching and Learning History has produced a paradox and a challenge for history teachers and teacher candidates: the traditional image of a history curriculum overloaded with first order concepts has been supplemented with a large number of second order concepts and expected learning outcomes in terms of procedural knowledge. The USA federal standards describe 468 abilities in US History and 611 abilities in world history and this pattern is reflected in curricula internationally. Will the teacher candidates be able to master all these new concepts, or will they produce an overloaded and fragmented education? To address this challenge in the education of student teachers from 2013-18 I have used a learning trajectory as a framework and guidance for teaching. I suggest the concept of a learning trajectory for building connections between content knowledge and procedural knowledge, with the ultimate aim being a qualified historical thinking. Hypothetically, this concept offers acognitive tool for teaching and learning history with progression. In the paper I discuss the general concept, it's application to teaching history and some preliminary results of investigating the learning processes of teacher candidates in history.
