Helping Gifted Students to Analyze Public Issues: The Jurisprudential Approach.
Shaver, James P.
Roeper Review, v7 n1 p4-7 Sep 1984
The case is made for the jurisprudential approach to social studies, which focuses on the analysis of public issues, as appropriate for gifted students. Case studies illustrate the approach's emphasis on decision making (and its natural concomitants of disagreement and value conflict) as a central component of democratic citizenship. (CL)
