Secondary School History: Objectives & Programs. Response to NASDTEC Standards, 3.4 Standard II.
McCarthy, J.M.
Because the study of history efficiently enculturates the young and contributes to the security and continuity of the society, it has almost always been accorded a place in the syllabus. Its inclusion in the American school syllabus has been variously modified by the considerations of several schools of educational philosophy and by the reports of a number of committees and task groups with utilitarian approaches to history dominant. The perceived inadequacy of many traditional techniques of teaching history has led to an emphasis on involving students in the use of historical method, which is best done by combining team teaching, individualized instruction, and the open classroom in a format which "postholes" history by utilizing a number of minicourses.
