New Dimensions in Social Studies: Focus on Skills.
Afolabi, Sol K.
The approaches and methods of teaching and learning social studies are examined. Fundamental study skills are emphasized: effective questioning techniques, data gathering, ability to recognize relationships in terms of time and space, and ability to recognize facts, opinions, and propaganda. To develop these skills it is recommended that priority be given to developing proficiency in essential reading, thinking and study skills rather than on rote learning of information. (JD)
