Commentary. On Shifting Sand: The Elementary Social Studies Teacher.
Levstik, Linda S.
Social Education, v52 n4 p320 Apr-May 1988
Relates three incidents which illustrate the "tendency to dullness" in elementary social studies. Notes two challenges to elementary social studies: (1) the tension between the needs of the individual and the claims of society; and (2) the debate between cultural transmission and transformation. Recommends studying teachers whose practices challenge the status quo in social studies. (JDH)
