Recent History of the Social Studies, 1945-1985: The Teachers' Perspective.
Nelson, Lynn R.; Drake, Frderick D.
Most research concerning the history of social studies education in the United States has focused on curriculum reform movements centered at universities. This oral history study, however, seeks to provide a history of the social studies from the perspective of the classroom teacher. The paper focuses on the curricular and instructional decisions made by high school social studies teachers in the four decades following the end of the Second World War. A review of the literature on social studies education and analysis of approximately 30 oral history interviews with high school teachers comprise the report. A 27-item reference list is included.
