Curriculum Components in History/Social Studies for Christian High Schools.
Greydanus, Samuel; Oosterman, Gordon
This curriculum and resource guide was written to encourage curriculum decision makers to plan an academic program that promotes creative growth, intellectual growth, spiritual growth, understandings other than superficial insights, other than humanistics, and an identification with today's problems as well as those recurring throughout history. The high school curriculum should be designed to assist in the mastery of the disciplines, the development of competence in the expression of thoughts, feelings, and convictions, and the development of responsible citizenship. Individual differences should be taken into consideration in the teaching of: anthropology, economics, geography, history, law, political science (civics), psychology, and sociology. There is a wide range of options of both programs and materials described here including sections for Contemporary Problems, value teaching, and curriculum analysis. Pages 59 through 106 list these resources: 1) Christian materials; 2) materials catalogs; 3) simulations and games; 4) instructional materials and audiovisuals on alcohol, drugs, nicotine, American History, communism, current affairs, international relations, area studies; 5) professional books and organizations; 6) list of publishers and curriculum projects; 7) magazines and journals; and, 8) testing programs.
