Social Studies Instruction: Connecting Students and Their Society.
Schools in the Middle, v1 n12 p7-9 Win 1991
A September 1991 National Council for Social Studies report urges that social studies instruction for middle school students should focus on developing young adolescents' self-esteem, personal ethics, democratic values, and concern for the larger world. These values are fostered by using experiential learning, interdisciplinary instruction, cooperative learning, heterogeneous grouping, controversial topics, and performance-based assessments. (MLH)
