An Approach to Selecting Among Social Studies Curricula; An Occasional Paper of the Metropolitan St. Louis Social Studies Center.
The rationale for developing this model is based on the idea that the Office of Education sponsored curriculum projects will in the near future produce a considerable number of choices for school districts across the nation. The model is meant to be used to analyze K-12 social studies curricula. It contains questions in four areas: 1) curricular intent, 2) measurement of the achievement of that intent, 3) validity of the content, and 4) the mechanics of implementation. The answers to the questions will then provide a guide to the selection of one curricula over another. A four page bibliography is provided. (CWB)
