The Social Studies: In Search of an Epistemology.
Longstreet, Wilma S.
Social Studies, v81 n6 p244-48 Nov-Dec 1990
Analyzes chapters on epistemology and methodology in the "Handbook of Research on Social Studies Teaching and Learning." Laments the imprecise definition concerning the epistemological nature of the social studies. Concludes the handbook does not clarify this definition and that social studies research reflects this missing broader framework. Sees hope for clarification in poststructuralist theories. (CH)
