The 1990s: A Challenge for the Social Studies.
Gross, Richard E.
San Francisco State University School of Education Review, v3 p54-58 1991
This essay outlines the history of social studies and the continuing push and pull of political favoritism that has marked its path since the second quarter of the century. Seen variously as too liberal, too progressive, even un-American, social studies is perhaps too sophisticated a concept for narrowly trained teachers and administrators. The social studies, says this author, is central to the development of effective citizens. (Author)
