CARDOSO, Oldimar. Towards a history didactics definition. Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.55, pp.153-170. ISSN 0102-0188.

This paper aims to define history didactics along the lines of the current German literature, which conceives it to be closer to history than to education. Associated to the word Geschichtsdidaktik, this definition is opposed to the concepts of history didactics as the art of teaching - Lehrkunst - history or as a collection of methods used both in the teaching of history and in the teaching of other school subjects - Unterrichtsmethoden. In opposition to these two definitions, this paper discusses German, French and Brazilian literatures to propose a conception of history didactics as a subarea of history, once it does not encompass only history teaching, but all history elaborations without a scientific form - nicht-wissenschaftsförmigen Geschichtsverarbeitungen.

Keywords : history didactics; historical-didactic research methodology; history teaching.
