BLASZAK, ROBERT; AND OTHERS
A CURRICULUM GUIDE FOR NINTH-GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES IS PRESENTED. IN TEACHING SOCIAL STUDIES THERE SHOULD BE A BALANCE BETWEEN THE TEACHING OF FACTS, AND THE TEACHING OF INTELLECTUAL DISCIPLINES AND FOUNDATION LEARNINGS THAT ARE PREREQUISITE TO UNDERSTANDINGS. IN THE CLASSROOM, THE CHILDREN SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO PRACTICE THE PRINCIPLES OF FREE GOVERNMENT, CITIZENSHIP, AND HUMAN RELATIONS. THREE PHASES OF THE SOCIAL STUDIES ARE HIGHLIGHTED--GOVERNMENT, ECONOMICS, AND SOCIOLOGY. THE COURSE IS PROVIDED FOR THE NEEDS OF STUDENTS OF VARIED ABILITIES AND INTERESTS, AND TEACHERS SHOULD RELATE SUBJECT MATTER TO THE DIVERSE INTERESTS AND BACKGROUNDS OF THE STUDENTS. INCLUDED ARE BILIOGRAPHIES FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS, A LIST OF AUDIOVISUAL AIDS, AND THREE SAMPLE LESSONS.
