A Plea for Rapprochement in Social Studies Reformation.
Saxe, David Warren
Social Education, v54 n6 p351-52 Oct 1990
Identifies problems plaguing social studies' future developments, including the content-process approach debate. Recommends a synoptic approach, based on meeting psychological students' needs and connecting ideas to learners. Argues against a uniform national social studies curriculum. Urges compromise among social studies teachers and researchers to ensure that social studies remains diverse, flexible, and democratically defined. (CH)
