Handbook for Secondary Social Studies Educators.
Bailey, Curtis; And Others
This handbook was developed as an aid to secondary school Oklahoma educators interested in improving social studies education and helping students become responsible, participating citizens. It can easily be used by educators in other states. The handbook begins with a discussion of different kinds of teaching methods and briefly examines reasons for teaching middle-school social studies. The second and major section of the handbook is grouped by courses taught in secondary Oklahoma schools: economics, geography, government, social education related courses, Oklahoma history, world history, and U.S. history. For each course, the following information is provided: rationale, course goals, course descriptions, objectives, suggested activities, and evaluation. The third section contains scope and sequence curriculum models which can be used by a school system as reference points when the social studies program is examined. The handbook concludes with bibliographies of professional organizations and teacher resources, lists of major social science concepts, a suggested policy on controversial issues, and a textbook evaluation form.
