Some Notes On "Relevance" from a Social Pathology Dropout
Selakovich, Daniel
Social Studies, 66, 4, 147-50, Jul/Aug 75
In many social studies classes learning is made "relevant" by simply presenting contemporary issues and current affairs. However, when teaching about issues, certain decisions need to be made concerning content and techniques. The author makes a suggestion that the major content focus on not merely understanding the problems facing society, but more importantly, on understanding -- through attempting classroom concensus -- why the difficult national problems have not been solved.
