Social Science Disciplines. Fundamental for Curriculum Development.
McLendon, Johathan C., Ed.
This guide is written for the social studies curriculum developer interested in developing a structured multidisciplinary program based on the concepts, methodology, and structure of social science disciplines and history. Seven 15-29 page chapters are included on each discipline: Anthropology and Psychology, by Charles R. Berryman; Economics, by Theodore C. Boyden; Geography, by John M. Ball; History, by Jim B. Pearson; Political Science, by Marion J. Rice; and, Sociology, by Paul E. Kelley. Within each chapter the disciplines are in terms of: 1) scope, breadth, or range of subject matter in the discipline; (2) kinds of basic questions to which answers are sought; 3) chief methods, techniques, or procedures for investigation; 4) key concepts in the disciplines; 5)structure or general approaches in the disciplines; and, 6) recent trends and new emphasis. This same structure is applied to a final chapter by the editor, Multidisciplinary Social Sciences, a discipline that encompasses the interrelated components of the social sciences. (Author/DJB)
