Emerging Paradigms: A Problem of Choice for Social Studies Educators.
Tucker, Jan L.
Construction of an idealized decision-making model discloses four major curriculum and instruction perspectives within the rubric of the new social studies. The matrix is based upon the decision contexts of content and process and is designed to help differentiate between varying intellectual positions, techniques, and strategies. Patterns of instruction which emerge are labeled: I) scientific, discipline-centered; II) humanistic, discipline-centered; III) scientific, problem-centered; and IV) humanistic, problem-centered. Each paradigm offers a basic curriculum and instruction option to teachers, and each competes with the others for professional recognition and acceptance. Explanatory notes include bibliographic citations and related references. (Author/SHM)
