European Curriculum Studies (in the Academic Secondary School). No. 9--Social and Civic Education.
Rust, W. Bonney
This volume on civic and social education in the member countries of the Council of Europe is one of a series of curriculum studies prepared under the auspices of the Oxford Council of Europe Study for the Evaluation of the Curriculum and Examinations (OCESCE Study). The aim of this series of studies is to help create conditions in which the right educational opportunities are available to young Europeans, whatever their background or level of academic accomplishment, and to facilitate their adjustment to changing political and social conditions. This entails in particular a greater rationalization of the complex educational process. This report is the result of comparative studies of the curriculum in Western Europe and analyzes civic and social education into six areas: the social, moral, political, national, European, and world citizen. The author also deals with the socialization process, the role of secondary education, general aims and goals of civic and social education, teaching methods and resources, and evaluation methods for such a curriculum. Charts and tables illustrate the findings of this report. (Author/JR)
