A Conceptual Framework for the Social Studies in Wisconsin Schools.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This publication is based on the belief that identifying fundamental, though flexible, ideas and using them to recognize and deal with new problems are the most important aspects of a social studies program. Revised from the first printing in 1964, this bulletin suggests to teachers and curriculum supervisors one possible method for organizing the social studies subject matter in a meaningful pattern on a K through 12 basis, within a given year of instruction, or within a single teaching unit. Introductory statements are provided about the nature of Economics, Geography, History, Anthropology-Sociology, and Political Science and how each relates to the social studies. Basic concepts from each of these disciplines are identified and incorporated into major discipline generalizations. The major portion of the booklet is devoted to outlining developmental variants of these generalizations for each grade level. (JLB)
