Hepburn, Mary A.; Dahler, Alfred
This summary of social studies/social science education doctoral dissertations provides a reference work of use to students, educators, researchers, and others interested in the topics, methods, outcomes, and patterns of recent graduate dissertations. Following an analytical introduction which describes the topics and problems most frequently addressed in the dissertations, summaries of 394 dissertations written between 1977 and 1982 are presented. The dissertations were selected from Dissertation Abstracts International (DAI) and classified into five categories: curriculum materials; teaching methods; school organization, curriculum organization, and school climate; teacher education and teacher characteristics; and studies of social studies in other countries. Each category includes the following subcategories: (1) social studies general subjects; (2) citizenship, law-related, and political education; (3) economics education; (4) geography and global studies; (5) behavioral sciences, ethnic, multicultural, and women's studies; (6) reading; and (7) values and moral education. In addition to the abstract, each entry includes author name, degree awarded, institution, dissertation title, descriptors indicating the main ideas of the study, and DAI order number. The document concludes with indices on topics, authors, authors' institutions, and instruments cited. (LH)
