Integrating Pluralistic Values for Reconstructing Society.
LeSourd, Sandra J.
Social Education, v55 n1 p52-54 Jan 1991
Criticizes primacy of the Eurocentric world view in social studies education. Argues that demographic realities demand that students understand and respect disparate, pluralistic values. Recommends curricular emphases and classroom methods for fostering analysis, clarification, and integration of differing ideologies. Contends that social studies education should help students resolve value conflicts and practice tolerance. (NL)
