En quoi l'enseignement de questions socialement vives, notamment l'esclavage, les traites négrières et leur abolition, peut-il pleinement contribuer à la formation d'une pensée critique chez des élèves de cycle 3 ?

Abstract : In accordance with the programs of June, 2008, the pupils must be trained to become future citizens, responsible and autonomous. Those attitudes are particularly required in history where the memorization of the facts matters much less than their understanding. To supply a glance lit on our more or less close environment requires beforehand to be made sensitive in a critical analysis and to be able to make work a sharpened critical thought. Indeed, the study of the history cannot be separated from the reading of the historic sources which go through the "historic truth" of the one who holds the feather. The teaching of the slavery illustrates perfectly this problem, because historical documents in our possession can deliver us a subjective vision of the facts. The pupils, made sensitive in the told facts, have to adopt a critical attitude in front of collected information confront with documents. Such skills are hence particularly looked for when approaching, in class, of some lively social questions which still arouse in the political, social and cultural sphere of profound reflections. This is notably the case in the recent historiography on the slavery, the slave draft and their abolition. It is thus a question of bringing concrete answers to questioning on the implementation of such an education to the primary school.
