A Review of the Status of Social Science Education in 1970 and Suggested Needs for the Coming Decade.
The focus is primarily on elementary and secondary education with implications for organized education at other levels. There are ten major topics of discussion: 1) the major social forces for stability and change that will effect planning; 2) the problem of educational change with emphasis on current analysis of change, educational history, and conflicts among goals and institutions; 3) the major components of the educational scene --learner, teacher, material, school, community, university, and government-- with comments on roles, problems, and change; 4) the nature of social science, interaction with, and contribution to elementary, secondary, and teacher education; 5) the learner, his needs, problems, and perscriptions for change; 6) the nature and roles of educational personnel; 7) the development, publication, and use of educational materials with analyses of the relationship of students, teachers, developers, and publishers; 8) the purposes, nature, and possible methods of analysis and evaluation; 9) the needs, modes, and possible methods of dissemination; and, 10) a selective summary of analyses and recommendations.
