Social Studies Education, into the Second Two Hundred Years.
Dunlap, Robert L., Ed.
The Councilor, v36 n1 May l976
This journal issue discusses the relevancy of K-12 social studies education and examines its future. The first of 12 articles examines several views of values education and presents a rationale for using values as a focus for studying alternative futures. The second article discusses objections raised to teaching about work in social studies and shows how some educators in Illinois attempted to answer these objections. In the third article the author discusses the question, Will the social studies become the survival studies? The implications of this question for the secondary social studies teacher are examined. Problems associated with gaining public support for social studies education are presented in the fourth article. The fifth article describes ways to change the social studies curricula. Other topics discussed include social studies education in Illinois, teaching historical methods, using a credit card system in the classroom, philatelic education, career education, and using case studies to teach decision making and values.
