Prominent Places for Historic Places in the K-12 Social Studies Curriculum of the 1990's.
Patrick, John J.
The National Register of Historic Places maintains a database with information on more than 60,000 historic places of significance in U.S. history. This paper contends that the emerging K-12 social studies core curriculum, as exemplified by the National Standards Project, contains a number of openings for teaching about historic places. Specifically, it is demonstrated that historic places can have a prominent place in the history and geography elements of the new social studies core curriculum. Suggestions for how social studies educators may utilize historic places in their teaching also are presented. (DB)
