”Comparing Our Pasts [COP] project adds a comparative and international dimension to a domestic pilot study funded in 2014. The Remembering Australia’s Past [RAP] pilot project explored what pre-service History teachers do know, understand, and believe is important about Australia’s past, using an adaptation of a narrative research methodology developed by Canadian Professor, Jocelyn Létourneau work [See]. This international comparative pilot project will utilise the same narrative collection methodology. The sample will include pre-service primary teachers and secondary History teachers in four countries: Australia, Canada, New Zealand., and Sweden. Professor Monika Vinterek and Robert Thorp at Dalarna University will participate in the Swedish part of the project. Thorp is PhD-student at Umeå University
