The Knowledge Base of Democratic Citizens.
Jarolimek, John
Social Studies, v81 n5 p194-96 Sep-Oct 1990
Underscores the importance of history and geography as the content base for K-12 citizenship education. Points out that changing global economic relationships demand adequate geography knowledge levels. Argues that uninspired teaching, rather than time shortages, have produced insufficient content knowledge and performance. Urges social studies educators to redouble efforts to guarantee the knowledge base that informs democratic citizen participation. (CH)
