The document contains four issues of a British journal intended as a medium of communication for teachers of social studies and social science at the elementary and secondary levels. The first issue presents a lead article stressing the need for a global approach in teaching social studies. Other articles focus on the need for educational assessment in schools and on various examination techniques. The second issue is devoted to an overview of economic education in Great Britain. Topics discussed include the need for a study of political economy, development of an economics syllabus, understanding British industry, and classroom simulations of economic situations. The third issue purports the usefulness of anthropology as an area of study within the social studies, suggests learning activities for the anthropology curriculum and discusses several anthropological concepts such as the social construction of reality and ethnic identity in a pluralist society. The fourth issue concentrates on urban studies and explains how activities such as field trips to factories and creating models of cities and towns can help students understand urban environments. Book review and correspondence sections are included in each issue. (DB)
