The Social Science Teacher. 1972. Collected Conference Papers: Social Science Concepts Classroom Methods.
Noble, Pat, Ed.; And Others
Papers in this publication are collected from a conference on social science concepts and classroom methods which focused on the theories of Jerome Bruner. The first article, entitled "Jerome Bruner," outlines four of Bruner's themes--structure, readiness, intuition, and interest--which relate to cognitive learning. Three papers--"Socialization" by Hedy Brown, "Teaching Social Stratification" by David Weir, and "The Concept of Stratification in Introductory Economics" by Pat Noble--discuss social science concepts developed into work units by study groups at the conference. Reports from three secondary work unit study groups explore possible ways of approaching the social science concepts. A final topic, integrated studies, is treated in two papers: "The Schools Council Integrated Studies Project," a report of a lecture by David Bolam, and "Social Science and Integrated Studies" by Martin Shipman. Both of these papers discuss the Schools Council curriculum project. (JH)
