Wrubel, Paul R.; Ratliff, Roosevelt
This document identifies doctoral dissertations on the topic of social studies which were written from 1973 through 1976. The dissertations were selected from Dissertation Abstracts International (DAI). Only those dissertations which focused on the social studies as a primary concern were included. An introduction discusses trends noted in the analysis of the dissertations. The bulk of the document presents abstracts of 322 dissertations, grouped into four categories. These are: (1) curriculum, which includes subcategories of objectives, anthropology, civics, economics, environmental education, ethnic studies, future studies, geography, history, international education, law instruction, slow learners, and theory; (2) instruction, which includes subcategories of audiovisual, cognitive processes, critical thinking, inquiry, evaluation, grouping, individualized learning, political socialization, skills, textbooks, time and space concepts, and values; (3) teachers and teacher education; and (4) social studies outside the United States. In addition to the abstract, each entry includes author's name, degree awarded, institution, year of dissertation completion, dissertation title, descriptors indicating the main ideas in the study, and DAI order number. The document concludes with subject, author, and degree-granting institution indexes. (AV)
