Social Studies Curriculum Survey.
Research and Information Services for Education, Conshohocken, PA.
The report provides information concerning the variety and content of secondary social studies electives in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The main goal of the report is to encourage the exchange of ideas and curriculum information among educators. Questionnaires, inquiring about the social studies curriculum for grades 7-12, were mailed to the social studies coordinators of each of the twenty-one districts in Montgomery County. Responses were obtained from nineteen of the twenty-one school districts. Because of course offerings for grades 7-9 were found to vary little (the few exceptions are noted in the report), the study deals primarily with the many elective programs offered at the high school level. A list of social studies electives together with the school districts offering each elective is provided in Part I of the report. Part II discusses length of study and admission requirements. Marking systems and credit given for electives are included in Part III. The final part of the study presents instructional techniques. Listings of documents pertaining to secondary social studies which may be of interest to educators are provided. Curriculum guidelines are also included from the Regulations of the Pennsylvania State Board of Education. (Author/RM)
