Identifying Issues in the Criticism of Social Studies Teaching.
Thornton, Stephen J.
An enhanced understanding of both practice and research in the social studies has been provided by researchers who presented narrative accounts and case studies of actual classroom teaching. The sort of examples of social studies teaching that emerge from narrative and other types of qualitative research are useful for constructing "fine-grained images of the possible in social studies teaching." Such positive, hopeful images are especially needed in teacher education, in the development of the thoughtful and caring teachers everyone agrees are necessary in the social studies and other fields. A 25-item list of references is included. (DB)
