Concepts and structure in the new social science curricula by Purdue University( Book )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social science in the schools; a search for rationale by Irving Morrissett( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of the volume is on reasons for selecting or not selecting any particular social science content, including history, for inclusion in the elementary and secondary social studies curriculum. Prominent authors from each of the social sciences--among them, Paul Ward, David Easton, and Ronald Lippitt--describe the nature of their disciplines and their role in the curriculum. Discussants and authors cover a wide range of related topics, including many aspects of history, inquiry, learning how to learn, curriculum construction, cooperative and competitive relationships between social scientists and educators, teacher education, systems analysis, and some radical proposals for reorganization of the educational systems. An introductory chapter deals with the meaning of rationale as applied to curriculum decisions. Three concluding chapters--including one by Kenneth Boulding--deal with approaches to synthesizing the social sciences. The volume is based on a 1967 conference conducted by the Social Science Education Consortium. (Author)

Using microcomputers in the social studies classroom by Robert B Abelson( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to help teachers feel at ease with microcomputers so that they will begin to think of computers as tools that they themselves might use. There are four chapters. The first chapter provides basic information to help a user understand the computer. Discussed are how the computer is put together and how it works. To help teachers generate ideas about how this new educational aid might be useful in terms of their own teaching objectives, the second chapter describes why and how other educators are using the computer. Chapter 3 is an introduction to software evaluation, I.E., how computer programs that are available for use in the classroom can be judged. Criteria are presented. It is suggested that teachers using computer-assisted instruction should have a feel for some of the broader issues related to computers in education, as well as practical knowledge. The purpose of the fourth chapter, which deals with social and educational issues and directions, is to provide a perspective about these broader issues and a context into which teachers might place their own activities. Most of the book's readings provide a bibliography of references and further resources. In addition, a list of resources available through the eric system is provided. (Rm)

Social studies in the mainstreamed classroom, K-6 by Anna S Ochoa-Becker( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A guide is designed for elementary school teachers with handicapped students in their classrooms. Seven sections comprise the document. Section I discusses the implications of mainstreaming for classroom teachers. Discussed are 1) the physical and social isolation of the handicapped students in the 1960s; 2) the impact of Public Law 94-142 which underscores the rights of these children to public education in a setting which includes children who are not handicapped; 3) practical and ethical considerations; and 4) identification of the handicapped. Section ii lists social studies goals for the handicapped learner relative to knowledge, skills, values, and social participation. Section iii discusses social studies instruction for handicapped students with learning disabilities, hearing impairments, emotional handicaps, visual impairment, speech and language disorders, and physical disabilities, and for those who are mentally retarded. Section iv provides methods of assessing achievement in relation to the goals stated in Section ii. Section v discusses providing for individual differences by listing sources of help for teachers (peer tutors, cross-age tutors, and volunteers) and strategies such as grouping. Section vi suggests teaching "regular students" about handicapping conditions through learning experiences, children's books, films and videotapes, and simulations. A brief list of resources is provided. The final section presents evaluations of social studies textbooks and federally funded curriculum projects for the handicapped. Related resources available from eric and Exceptional Child Education Resources (ecer) are listed. (Kc)

The current state of social studies : a report of Project SPAN by Inc., Boulder, Co Social Science Education Consortium( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, one in a series resulting from Project span (Social Studies/Social Science Education: Priorities, Practices, and Needs), reviews and analyzes the current state of k-12 social studies. A major purpose of the review and analysis was to form a basis for recommendations for future directions that might be taken to improve social studies. The report contains six sections. The first section provides a broad and integrative analysis of the interrelated topics of rationales, definitions, approaches, goals, and objectives of social studies. The second section, "Curriculum Organization in Social Studies," describes the typical pattern of social studies programs from kindergarten through grade 12, stating that despite numerous variations that have occurred, the dominant pattern throughout the nation is one that was established more than 60 years ago. "Social Studies Curriculum Materials," the third section of the volume, describes the great extent to which students, teachers, administrators, and the public accept and rely on curriculum materials as essential aids to teaching, learning, and classroom management. Foremost among curriculum materials being used are textbooks. The topic of the fourth section is "Social Studies Teachers." There is general agreement that the teacher is "the central figure," the "key," or "the magic ingredient" in the learning process. The fifth section, "Instructional Practices in Social Studies," presents a detailed report on what teachers do. The last section, "Barriers to Change in Social Studies," focusing on the fact that the new social studies had relatively little impact on the schools, explores reasons for lack of change in schools.

Connecting science, technology, and society in the education of citizens by John J Patrick( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to help educators address science-related social issues, this publication considers: (1) major challenges associated with science-related social issues; (2) the extent to which these challenges are being met; (3) ways in which educators can improve the education of citizens in science, technology, and social issues; and (4) promising practices that can contribute to building connections between social studies and science curricula. Three challenges outlined in the first of five sections include: (1) informing citizens about complex social issues and decisions, (2) connecting diverse fields of knowledge in school curricula, and (3) resisting antagonists of science and technology. In order to determine the extent to which these challenges are currently being met, the second section examines: goal statements in curriculum reports and major reports in the social studies and the sciences; research findings on student knowledge and attitudes regarding science, technology, and society; and analyses of current curricula and textbooks. The third section describes ways in which "integrative threads" can be used to provide common learning experiences within and between distinct courses in the social studies and sciences. The fourth section presents promising practices that can contribute to this building of connections between social studies and science curricula; the use of "decision trees" and case studies, the use of role play and simulation, and the use of instructional television and microcomputers. Concluding observations in the final section and a bibliography listing over 170 publications conclude the document. (Lh)

Guide to selected ethnic heritage materials, 1974-1980 by Frances, Ed Haley( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected materials produced by Title ix Ethnic Heritage Studies Program projects, funded from 1974 through 1978, are evaluated in this catalog. The materials were selected by three panels of evaluators using three areas of criteria: (1) appropriateness for use in learning situations; (2) ethnic authenticity of content, and (3) technical quality for potential dissemination. An introduction describes the purpose of the evaluation project, development of evaluation instruments, selection of panelists who evaluated materials, and process and results of the evaluation. One hundred and two projects (comprised of 438 pieces of materials) are evaluated. These evaluations are organized by state or territory and, within each state or territory, by the institution that received the grant. Headings for each entry include information on the project title and address, name of project director, ethnic group or groups on which the project focused, audience and grade level for the project, the project's subject (curricular) area, the format of the materials developed (I.E., print or nonprint), the amount of funding, the titles of materials accepted, and availability information for each piece of material. The heading information is followed by a description of the project materials. The final and major portion of the entry for each project presents evaluative comments and suggestions made by members of the three panels. Four indexes facilitate use of the analyses--ethnic group, geographic area, subject area, and materials titles. Appendices include evaluation instruments and a list of Ethnic Studies projects.

Educational reform and social studies : implications of six reports by Fred M Newmann( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The implications of six national reports for social studies are examined. These implications are compared with past and present practices in the social studies and the ways in which the reports fail to give useful guidance to teachers are noted. An introductory chapter presents a broad overview of the six reports: "The Paideia Proposal: An Educational Manifesto" (Adler, 1982), "High School: a Report on Secondary Education in America" (Boyer, 1983), "Academic Preparation for College: What Students Need to Know and Be Able to Do" (The College Board, 1983), "a Place Called School: Prospects for the Future (Goodlad, 1983), "a Nation at Risk: The Imperative of Educational Reform" (National Commission on Excellence in Education, 1983), and "Horace's Compromise: The Dilemma of the American High School" (Sizer, 1984). The second section focuses on the effects of these reports on social studies education, specifically regarding the goals of social education, curriculum organization and selection of subject matter, effective forms of teaching, and evaluation of student performance. Implications regarding time alloted for social studies, common core curriculum, specific content to be taught, and the organization of social studies into a meaningful sequence are considered. The final section examines the usefulness of the reports for teachers. While noting that the reports offer little assistance in resolving critical issues on social studies, the document stresses that the calls for quality in education can be used to support continuing work on these issues. A list of 53 references and an annotated list of related resources in eric conclude the document. (Lh)
