Bureau of Social Studies Education Newsletter. Volume 1, Number 3.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Social Studies Education.
The aim of this newsletter, issued six times a year, is to help social studies teachers and supervisors define issues or questions concerning social studies program planning and suggest directions for dealing with issues. Suppositions for the teacher concerning their instructional programs are offered, followed by suggestions to consider in each instance. The supposition that the teacher decides to implement an alternative program requires that he or she be concerned with available resources, working within state requirements, basic social studies skills, other considerations such as time span, teacher and administrative commitment, and with community understanding. Other suppositions are that a teacher is asked to translate the social studies program into performance goals; that a district drops a fourth year social studies requirement; and that a teacher is asked to reorganize a social studies program when tracking is eliminated. Other items included in the newsletter are announcement of upcoming conferences, opportunities for teachers, and new social studies projects. The newsletter is free to those who place their name on the mailing list. (SJM)
