The Study of Education: An Integrated Program for Grades 1- 12.
Bruce, Martha; Coulter, Kenneth C.
Designed for social studies teachers, this supplemental guide explains how to incorporate the study of education within the regular curriculum. The objectives of the program are to give students a knowledge of: 1) the history of educational thought, 2) comparative educational systems, 3) the development of education in America, 4) local, state, and national educational practices emphasizing current educational purposes and problems. Among the long-term affective objectives are an increased appreciation of education and concern for its improvement. While the guide provides supplementary activities through grade 7, such as constructing a horn book in grade 5 and a discussion of freedom of thought under communism in grade 6, separate units are outlined for grades 8 and 9 and senior high school. Also included are bibliographies of fiction, biography, non-fiction for students at each grade level, and adult level books for teachers and high school students. (DJB)
