Materials for Civics, Government, and Problems of Democracy: Political Science in the New Social Studies.
Turner, Mary Jane
This study is addressed to the individual analysis of 49 packages of materials produced by 42 social science curriculum projects during the 1960's for use by educators in school districts throughout the nation and professional political scientists. Each analysis includes both a narrative description and an information checklist. The narrative includes: 1) the name of the curriculum developed and specific titles within the curriculum; 2) the project director and project address; 3) the publishers name and address, publishing date, and cost of the materials; 4) information about the grade levels and kinds of existing course structure into which the materials fit; and, 5) the social science disciplines which provide the dominant or organizing thread for the materials. This is followed by a brief statement of the development rationale. The checklists include the categories: descriptive characteristics, substantive characteristics, and strategies employed and evaluation information; also, three comparative summary charts. In addition, the materials are classified and listed in four categories according to their focus or emphasis on: 1) interdisciplinary use of the social sciences; 2) a particular social science discipline other than political science; 3) a particular geographic area; or, 4) political science.
