Characteristics of Secondary Social Studies Teachers: An Update of Ochoa's 1981 Report.
Bliss, David; Banks, Dennis N.
Previous studies on characteristics of social studies students have been mostly limited to heavily populated areas. This study attempts to identify the characteristics of public school Social Studies teachers (grades 7-12) in a rural, upstate New York county. Anne Ochoa's 1981 study, "A Profile of Social Studies Teachers," was used as a model for the survey conducted with this sample. Forty-eight teachers in 12 school districts in Oksego County received the survey with 35 teachers responding. Results obtained from this study were similar to the Ochoa findings. Social studies teachers were a mirror of the community, if not the nation, at large. Although a smaller number of teachers were polled than in the Ochoa study, results of this study were comparable to the larger study. (EH)
