Are Social Studies Teachers Teaching Secular Humanism?
Farmer, Rod
Social Studies, v71 n3 p126-28 May-Jun 1980
Discusses the controversy over teaching what religious fundamentalists and social conservatives consider secular humanism. Suggests that modern social studies does not support secular humanism even though they share epistemological and ethical assumptions (the use of the scientific method, intelligent reasoning). Provides suggestions for teachers in handling this controversy. (Author/KC)
