An Annotated Bibliography regarding the Correlates of Students' Negative Attitudes towards the Subject of Social Studies in the Elementary School Curriculum.
Dance, Charles S.
The problem in elementary social studies education is that it is one of the least-liked subjects. This has a devastating impact on social studies, a significant facet of the school curriculum. This bibliography reviews the research and the opinions and identifies the problems, the potential harm, the correlates, and reform attempts related to students' negative attitudes towards the subject. The document states the problem, and the purpose, organization, and limitations of the study; gives a glossary of social studies terms; and uses annotations of selected educational materials to support the problem, the potential harm, and the attempts at social studies reform. A summary with conclusions and recommendations is provided along with an additional bibliography. (KWL)
