Social Studies for the Disadvantaged.
Selakovich, Daniel
The object of this book is held to be to help teachers in the difficult task of working with children who are experiencing various degrees of failure in the conventional secondary school social studies curriculum. The book has been written for inservice teachers in every community where such problems exist and for students interested in teaching social studies but who have yet to realize that such problems exist. The book is about equally divided in terms of theory and practice. Attempts are made to answer practical questions such as, "how to motivate students", "how to help students with reading and writing problems," and the like. Learning theory is examined with a view toward selecting those aspects of theory most appropriate for application to the problems of the poor student. Theories with regard to reading and communication are examined and applied and several models for teaching thinking skills are presented and analyzed in terms of their usefulness in the classroom. More specifically are discussed such topics as curriculum relevance, integration, employment, teacher values, and learning styles of the poor. (Author/JW)
