Primary sources can be very important in the teaching of history, as they expose students to historical concepts in ways that books and articles cannot. Primary sources, such as historical documents, capture the interest of students and personalize and humanize history for the student. Use of such sources also helps the students develop important analytical skills, and gives them an opportunity to participate in the process of history. A collection of 52 articles, each highlighting a National Archives document and providing practical suggestions for classroom use, is presented in this book. The articles originally appeared in "Social Education," a journal published by the National Council for the Social Studies. Essays are intended to aid teachers in the use of primary documents to enhance their curriculum. Dating from the 1780s to the 1970s, the documents include letters, photographs, posters, reports, telegrams, and maps. (As)

Promising practices in civic education by Donald W Robinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The survey reported in this volume is one of four separate projects for an integrated study of civic education financed by the Danforth Foundation. Visits were made to 83 schools in 27 States selected from a list of 300 nominations. The selected junior and senior high schools were reputed to have promising practices in citizenship education. They represented all geographical areas--inner-city, suburban, and rural--and were located in communities with populations from under 2,000 to more than a million. The first three chapters of this report identify the project team's beliefs concerning contemporary educational challenges, goals for civic education, and methods for approaching these goals. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 include descriptions of school practices, arbitrarily grouped according to the citizenship goals they most strongly exemplify. Chapters 7 through 11 discuss administrative arrangements and other factors that facilitate civic education. Finally, chapter 12 presents a restatement of civic education ideals in the light of the practices observed in the schools. (Mf)

The censorship game and how to play it : with an appendix of NCSS statements on academic freedom, controversial issues, and civil rights by Charles Benjamin Cox( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pamphlet is designed to help teachers, administrators, and parents understand the meanings, implications, and methods of censorship in public schools. Censorship is defined as "any limitation placed on a curricular choice for the wrong reasons." A test of the validity of a censorship case lies in the justifications offered for the restrictions. One section discusses the rationale for censorship. Of utmost importance is the giving of reasons for expressed preferences and the comparing and weighing of favored reasons against all others put forward. Roles of the school are to provide for the development of the physical and mental health of students, sustain the personal dignity of all individuals, stand for rationality and against irrationality, and promote global-mindedness in students. Problems in resolving censorship cases involving curriculum decisions reflect any of three possible models of community and school relationships. These range from complete community faith in professional educators' decisions to equal participation by community and professionals in decision making. Another section illustrates principles of rational valuation applied to a case of censorship of certain books in a humanities course. An appendix provides texts of seven ncss statements on academic freedom, controversial issues, and civil rights. (Av)

Problem-centered social studies instruction; approaches to reflective teaching by Richard E Gross( Book )

2 editions published between 1971 and 1980 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plea of this bulletin, the second and full revision of The Problems Approach and the Social Studies copyrighted in 1955 and 1960, is for teachers to do more with the reflective method in their classrooms. It draws upon the latest and most pertinent insights distilled from research, theory, and practice associated with reflective thinking; deals with specific whats, whys, how, and whens of problem solving in social studies at the elementary and secondary school levels; and, makes a case for increased use of this inquiry method and type of program organization. Specific suggestions are offered that range from the question-answering stage to full-fledged problem-solving units. Chapter 1 by Maurice P. Hunt and Lawrence E. Metcalf introduces the reader to the theory, philosophy, and psychology of the problems approach. Fannie R. Shaftel, Charlotte Crabtree, and Vivian S. Sherman discuss problem resolution in the elementary school. The third chapter on the junior high school is provided by William E. Gardner. Robert E. Jewett treats the senior high school. Trends in the use of reflective teaching, the subject of chapter 5, have been identified and analyzed by Emily S. Girault. Chapter 6 on teaching resources has been prepared by Jack W. Miller.
