Resources on Hot Topics in the Social Studies.
Pinhey, Laura A., Ed.
This compilation of annotated bibliographies focuses on current popular and important topics in social studies education. The bibliographies, drawn from the ERIC database of education-related literature, include recent (mostly 1994-1998) citations with abstracts from the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS)-published journals, "Social Studies and the Young Learner" and "Social Education." The broad field of social studies/social science education has many "hot topics" that engage and challenge practitioners and researchers. Five categories of current discourse and debate are discussed in this volume. They are: (1) global education; (2) multicultural education; (3) law-related education; (4) scope and sequence; and (5) citizenship education. In addition to the bibliographies, ERIC Digests on related topics are included. Information on how to obtain the journal articles and documents listed in the ERIC Database and on how to submit documents to ERIC (including an ERIC Reproduction Release Form) is provided. (LB)
