Analysis and Dissemination of Completed Social Science Research Reports and Materials Resulting from Regional Program Efforts. Final Report.
Schneider, Joachim R.; And Others
The central focus of this study was an analysis of social science research that had been supported by the U. S. Office of Education's Small Grant Research Program (SGRP). Background information was provided on the objectives and procedures of the SGRP. Information was provided on some 25 social science projects that had received support through the regional Offices of Education. In addition to summary accounts of the individual projects, a matrix was provided to identify the level (elementary, secondary, higher education, all-general), the focus (research, training, curriculum, all-general), and the research area (anthropology, archaeology, economics, American history, world history, humanities, political science, social studies, sociology, psychology). The status, trends, and needs in social studies research were noted in the activities of specialized projects and through interviews with eminent scholars in the field. It was suggested that research efforts be expanded, a greater effort be made for effective dissemination in the social studies area, and that all agencies and professionals develop a new spirit of cooperation to better delineate the problems and avenues for solution in the complex arena of social sciences. A continuing need will be that of keeping the practitioner adequately informed as to the developments in the field. (Author)
