Guide to Concept Development in the Social Studies.
Lengel, James G.; McCafferty, H. Donn
This guide lists and defines concepts from seven social science disciplines and presents strategies for concept teaching in the social sciences at the elementary and secondary levels. The guide's four main sections are Theoretical Introduction, Concepts from the Social Sciences, Teaching Strategies, and the Future. The Theoretical Introduction section discusses what a concept is and outlines a general social studies curriculum structure which relates concepts, skills, and content into a system for program planning. The section on Concepts from the Social Sciences, which comprises the major portion of the guide, lists and defines concepts in anthropology-sociology, economics, geography, history, political science, and psychology. Focus questions which teachers can use with students are provided for the concepts. The Teaching Strategies section discusses procedures for teaching the concepts of the preceding section and contains a sample lesson plan. The guide concludes with a brief outline of subjects to be included in future volumes. (Author/RM)
