If It Ain't Survival...It's Catastrophe: A Social Studies Curriculum for a Modern World.
Knox, Gary A.
The goal of the Marin Social Studies Project was to present a relevant and comprehensive design for American social studies education and to serve as a change agent by providing rational and viable alternatives to present practices. This paper documents the development of this curriculum design, defining the purpose of teaching and the nature of students and learning. A model by which educators can identify general objectives necessary for a humane survival social studies curriculum is presented and each prerequisite for a curriculum based on education for survival in a civilized and changing world is discussed. Emphasis is placed on how the interdependent discipline of social studies can best function to develop self-actualizing learners into more rational decision-makers about human behavior and social interactions.
