More Than a Good Idea: Moving from Words to Action in Social Studies. 1989 British Columbia Assessment of Social Studies Provincial Report.
Cassidy, Wanda; Bognar, Carl J.
A summary of the findings from the 1989 British Columbia (Canada) Assessment of Social Studies is presented. The extensive revision of the curriculum undertaken since the last social studies assessment (Aoki, Langford, Williams and Wilson, 1977), resulted in a relatively progressive and challenging curriculum. A few modifications are proposed in this document. The intent of this report is to stimulate debate about the state of social studies and provide the catalyst for more effective implementation of the social studies curriculum. The report consists of five parts: (1) an overview; (2) achievement in social studies; (3) attitudes; (4) teaching social studies; and (5) general conclusions. An appendix lists the procedures used in conducting the assessment. A 16-item list of references is included. (DB)
