Zhao, Yali
China's opening to the world and economic reform in the late 1970s led to tremendous progress in Chinese education. Social science education, has traditionally assumed the most important task of cultivating responsible citizens. It has undergone remarkable changes in quantity and quality as a result of the change of the social and economic systems, the change in people's perspective of the world around them, the influence of globalization, and the requirement of social adaptability. Social science education curriculum has begun to put great emphasis on cultivating students who are able to adapt to a changing society and able to face challenges in the new century. This paper explores these changes through analysis of some current Chinese social science textbooks at the primary and secondary level. Contains seven references and lists textbooks published between 1980 and 2001. (Author/BT)
