Survey-Elective Social Studies Program for Senior High Schools.
Anchorage Borough School District, AK.
Forty-seven elective secondary level social studies courses are described in this catalog. The underlying overall philosophy of the program is to recognize the basic worth of the individual and to help each student reach his potential. Four kinds of affective and cognitive objectives essential to continuing growth are emphasized: inquiry skills, attitudes, values, and knowledge. Each course is briefly described and specific objectives presented; a list of resource materials included consisting of optional books, films, filmstrips, and games; and a general outline with suggested approaches given. A broad scope offers courses in ancient through modern history, world history, American and local history, area studies, political science, philosophy, psychology, urban studies, sociology, geography, economics, environmental studies, contemporary problems, and independent studies. Electives are graded as to their level of difficulty. (SJM)
