Lucey, Thomas A.; Meyer, Barbara B.
Action in Teacher Education, v35 n5-6 p462-474 2013
This article communicates results of data analysis from an online survey of teachers in the state of Illinois. The data were collected as part of the National Profile of Social Studies Teachers Project (NPSS), which concerned the status of social studies teaching. This article spotlights social studies education and the relationship of teaching conditions/practices with the values contained with the methods and content. This study found that respondents defined social studies' importance and student learning in terms of content. The responses conveyed this view of content among respondents and were consistent with established relationships between state assessments and teacher views of social studies.
