Putting Bloom and Hirsch to Work: Core Concepts in the Social Sciences.
If the current state of crisis in education in this country is to be remedied, certain reliable and verified concepts of education must be asserted and maintained. This paper suggests that the core concepts of the social sciences may be learned through exercises involving excerpts from "Great Books." These exercises involve learning the core concept, its definitions, its descriptions, and examples; reading and understanding the selection or excerpt in the context of time and place; and writing an essay to answer questions relating the core concept to the reading. Twenty key terms (core concepts) are presented and sample exercises involving a number of these terms are included. (DB)
