Child Development and Social Science Education. Part III: Abstracts of Relevant Literature.
Sigel, Irving; Waters, Elinor
Part III of a four-part report contains over 60 annotated abstarcts of child development source materials relevant to the construction of social studies curriculums. For this collection, social sciences were defined as anthropology, sociology, economics, political science, and psychology. An accepted operational definition was that a social science concept is any term that is inclusive of a number of things, instances, or events. Abstracts were culled from major journals and other collections of writings concerning social science disciplines. Articles on the content and strategy of teaching social science were chosen on the basis of use to a practitioner, whether classroom teacher or curriculum specialist. (MS)
