Social Studies Projects Tour: An Informal Report.
Risinger, Fred; Radz, Michael
The objective of this paper is to bring information about 40 social studies/social science centers and projects up to date as of late spring 1971. This publication differs from the directories and summaries of the projects begun in the late 1960's in that the reports are based on personal interviews between the Social Science Education Consortium Teacher Associates and the project personnel. Interviews were conducted between November 1970 and April 1971. With the exception of four instances they were made on the project site. Emphasis is on the current status of the project, but coverage includes future plans and projected publications. Further, this paper represents a more personal and candid view of the projects, from the perspective of the teacher and department head, and includes informal observations of project directors and their staffs. The related directories and summaries are: 1) Directory of Social Studies Curriculum Projects, ED 041 814; 2) Directory of Research and Curriculum Development Projects in Social Science Education, ED 042 671; 3) Social Studies Education Projects: An ASCD Index, ED 050 003; and, 4) Social Studies Curriculum Materials Data Book, SSEC-Pub-139 or ED 051 059.
