Knowledge Processes and Values in the New Social Studies.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This guide for teacher K-12 is an outgrowth of an earlier guide for the teaching of social studies in Wisconsin schools. The new guide re-emphasizes the teaching of social knowledge and skills and devotes approximately one half of its length to the teaching of values, a subject neglected in the earlier guide. In the first two sections dealing with knowledge the concern is with current social science knowledge, the thinking skills necessary to arrive at knowledge, and the necessary teaching strategies. In the final section which covers values the intent is to provide the teacher with the rationale for including the study of values in his classroom and to provide him with some strategies for teaching about valuing. The overall tone of the guide and especially of section III is on integration of not only the various social sciences, but of knowledges and rational skills to arrive at values which will produce meaning in the individual life of the student. A bibliography is included. (CWB)
