Hoffman, Alan J.; Hoffman, Nancy L.
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v1 n1 p14-18 Sep-Oct 1988
Stating that the essential characteristics of citizenship are found in children's natural social interactions, the authors argue that sports should be used in citizenship education to teach rules, roles, consequences, respect, allegiance, winning, losing, and fairness. Teaching suggestions include a list of exemplary sports heroes, illustrative games, and sports-related issues for discussion. (GEA)
