United States History in the Secondary School. Contemporary Problems.
Point Pleasant Beach Board of Education, NJ.
This is one unit of the series described in SO 000 378. The essential ingredients are not the problems of American society themselves but the ability to recognize them, to view these problems in historical perspective, to mitigate or bring out effective change, to assign priorities, to investigate satisfactory problem-solving methods, and above all, to become involved. Other specific objectives are listed: 1) to become aware of the interrelationship of many of societies major problems; 2) to understand that the solutions to current problems often lead to the creation of new and more intricate problems; 3) to realize the need for institutions even though the student may challenge their procedures and value base; and, 4) to understand that there is often a dichotomy between idealism and realism in relating ideals to problems that exist, and assuming responsibilities for problem solution.
