Part of a continuing process of curriculum reform in social studies in Iowa, this document presents teachers with the necessary background and information to aid in the reform, innovation, and evaluation of their own social studies programs. The materials are geared toward the appreciation and eventual implementation of new social studies techniques. The document examines five areas of the process which can be implemented individually or through inservice programs. Part one is designed to whet the teacher's appetite for the new social studies and to provide him with the methodological background necessary for the revision of his own curriculum. The chapters question what should be taught in social studies and deal with the following methodological themes: questioning, valuing, objectives, inquiry, simulation, and evaluation. Part two provides the analytical tools necessary to begin the revision process. Part three takes teachers through a 10-step revision process by combining curriculum experience and analysis into a workable curriculum revision program. Part four provides an up-to-date resource guide of the newest social studies project and inquiry materials that can supplement the curriculum change. (Author/JR)
