Use of Superstition and Fatalism by Secondary Students in Explaining Problems in Social Studies.
Ferro, Gregory E.
Education, v102 n1 p27-33 Fall 1981
Students, whether they are academic or vocational-technical majors, need to interpret social studies problems by use of the scientific approach rather than by the use of fatalism, supernaturalism, and superstition. To ensure this outcome, secondary school curricula must provide enriching experiences through modern instructional techniques which develop the scientific approach. (CM)
