Child Development and Social Science Education. Part I: The Problem, Part II: Conference Report.
Parts I and II of a four-part report on a study of the relevance of existing knowledge about child development to social science curriculum development are combined in this document. Part I explores the problem of inadequate communication between the developmental psychologists and curriculum workers and suggests some directions for cooperative efforts involving the two groups. Part II is an account of a test run of such a cooperative effort in which the findings of developmental psychologists were applied to the specific problems of social science educators. Part II pertains to an age group of 10- and 11-year-olds. (MS)
