Chapin, June R.
This publication contains 417 abstracts of doctoral dissertations done in social studies education from January 1969 through March 1973. All abstracts contained in the volume were excerpted from Dissertation Abstracts International. This work updates two previous reviews of social studies dissertations, one by Walter McPhie, covering the period 1934-1962, published by the National Council for the Social Studies, and the other by Richard Gross and Leonardo de la Cruz, covering the period 1963-1969, published by the ERIC Clearinghouse for Social Studies/Social Science Education. The purpose in compiling these dissertation abstracts is to aid persons who seek information on doctoral work done in social studies education. The first part of the volume provides a descriptive analysis of the dissertations that are abstracted in the main body of the document. The abstracts themselves are arranged first by subject category, and are then further grouped by grade level studies in the dissertation. Each abstract contains the author's name, degree awarded, degree granting institution, year of dissertation completion, dissertation title, list of descriptors which enumerates the major topics dealt with in the study, a description of the research methodology and results, number of pages in the original dissertation, and an order number to be used in ordering copies of the dissertation from Dissertation Abstracts International. Following the abstracts are subject, author, and institution indexes. (Author/RM)
