Social Studies for Behavioral Change. A Book of Readings in the New Social Studies.
Bragg, Desmond H., Ed.; Drumheller, Sidney J., Ed.
This book of readings in social studies makes available several recent developments in this discipline and attempts to summarize some of the projects, monographs, and special programs being conducted at several major curriculum centers. Five facets of the new social studies are examined here. Part One is an overview of the nature and direction of the new social studies. Attention is given to the administrative problems which are likely to occur with rapid and significant changes such as those envisioned here. Readings are cited for student discovery and development. Part Two details several strategies and teaching-learning techniques advocated by leading social studies specialists. These strategies may be applied--sometimes with modifications--to nearly all the social studies areas and at most grade levels. Part Three illustrates techniques which apply specifically to several of the major fields of study. Part Four offers examples of the interdisciplinary approach, and Part Five demonstrates how all the disciplines and resources of the social studies may be brought to bear on significant social problems in order to effect social change.
