Intercultural Social Studies Project for Secondary Schools. Annual Report.
Oswald, James M.
During the 1972-1973 school year the Intercultural Social Studies Project for Secondary Schools created and maintained a culture studies network involving 103 teachers and their students. More than 50 "Fieldstaff Perspectives" were designed in booklet, photograph, map, and simulation-games formats for field testing within the project network. Materials were prepared to meet a variety of reading ability levels (7-12), conceptual comprehension levels, and interest levels. Staff leadership resulted in the production and testing of materials, workshops for culture studies teachers, articles in professional journals, and newsletters, and the beginnings of a model or pedagogical framework for studying cultures. This was the first of a projected two-year developmental project (1972-1974) initiated jointly by the American Universities Field Staff and the Institute of International Studies of the United States Office of Education.
