How Do You Spell Social Studies?
Larson, Susan Booth
This paper argues that social studies educators need to develop their own definition of what social studies means and to let other persons know what this social studies looks like. It is contended that part of the problem concerning what social studies is and what place in the curriculum it should occupy is that social studies educators have let others (most notably students, parents, and educational critics) define the discipline for them.
