Social Studies on the Outside Looking In: Redeeming the Neglected Curriculum
Hermeling, Andrew Dyrli
District Administration, v49 n3 p51-52, 54-55 Mar 2013
Many social studies teachers are nervous about the coming of Common Core State Standards. With so much emphasis placed on literacy, social studies teachers fear they will see content slashed to leave time for meeting English's non-fiction standards. Already reeling from a lack of attention from the benchmarks put in place by No Child Left Behind, those devoted to social studies feel like they are once again on the outside looking in. However, could the implementation of Common Core actually bring social studies back into focus? Organizations such as the National Council for the Social Studies and the National History Education Clearinghouse have begun mobilizing to advocate for dedicated social studies curricula aligned with Common Core. This article discusses the meaning of Common Core. (Contains 8 resources.)
