Research in Social Studies and Social Science Education: Introduction, Analyses, and Reviews of Research.
Oswald, James M.
An overview of the development of research in social studies education, representing investigations made during this century up to 1970, is presented in this reference handbook. The guide, designed to aid researchers in the field, is arranged in three main sections. In the first section, Research in Social Studies and Social Science Education, available resources are introduced, including procedures for obtaining facsimile documents from major repositories. Secondly, an analysis of the field of social studies research is provided. The major portion, section three, is devoted to a series of twelve articles appearing between 1941 and 1970 in publications of the American Educational Research Association and of the National Council for the Social Studies. Each of the articles, written by an authority in the field of social studies/social science education, is reprinted in its original form, including a bibliography. Two appendices are presented on The Social Studies Educator and on Experimental Classroom Studies of Teacher Training, Teaching Behavior, and Student Achievement. Subject and author indices conclude the reference work. (Author/SJM)
