Social Studies Methods and the Curriculum Projects: A Potentially Disfunctional Misalignment.
Most social studies methods course textbooks concentrate on planning, assuming the teacher will operate as his own curriculum developer and packager. Curriculum development projects prepackage materials and often include specific instructions on how to use them. Only a few textbooks and projects incorporate selecting/adapting skill development the teacher can apply to choosing or adapting project materials. If this misalignment continues both methods courses and projects will be disfunctional in their common concern, improving the teaching of the social studies in the schools. (VW)
