New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
The relationship of education to the society in the various periods of American history is emphasized in this teaching guide for eleventh grade students. Through the educational history frame of reference, students compare such current concerns as school governance and community interests concerning problems in financing education with the relationship of education to society. Teachers will find references in this guide to the syllabus topic IV described in ED 065 385. The strategies, suggested learning materials and cue samples are intended to help them in implementing the Education segment of this topic, utilizing an inquiry approach. Understandings focus on the purpose of education, citizenship preparation, the financing of education, the changing role of the schools, education as a reflection of society, and education as an individual attainment. Included in the appendix is the report of the department-sponsored Glens Falls Conference. (Author/SJM)
