Bulletin of the Scottish Centre for Social Subjects. Number 4.
Scottish Centre for Social Subjects, Glasgow.
Curriculum development in the social sciences at both the national and local levels in Scotland is discussed in this bulletin. The first article presents guidelines for preparing materials for slow learners, primarily elementary students. The second article discusses the work of a primary and secondary liaison in geography instruction. Examination of a history project which aims to stimulate student interests is presented in the third article. Some aspects of the nature of curriculum evaluation comprise the fourth article. Reflections on European studies and physical geography in Scottish secondary schools conclude the document. The Scottish Centre's interest and activities focus on collecting and disseminating information on curricular developments in the social sciences; helping the Scottish Central Committee to coordinate the activities of local groups and working parties of teachers; and issuing teaching and learning materials for testing in schools and collecting and processing the results. The bulletin is published irregularly. (Author/JR)
