Project FICSS (Focus on Inner City Social Studies). Final Report.
The major objective of this project was to develop a new social studies curriculum for the inner city. Specific needs were to be addressed in developing the new social studies: the need to be an agent for developing the intellectual skills necessary for citizens to assimilate and process information so that they can better aid in determining policy, and the need to have a cohesive curriculum which is designed from the primary through the secondary grades. The creation of such a social studies design from 1968 to 1971 is described in this report. Chapter one focuses on the problem of the social studies program in the inner city, while chapter two gives a brief history of the project. Chapters three, four, and five discuss the products of the project, the evaluations of the products, and the future of FICSS respectively. Twelve appendices comprise the remainder of this work. The five Ohio school districts supporting and participating in this project are Akron, Canton, Mansfield, Youngstown and the Youngstown Diocese. (FDI)
