Social Scientists, Historians and Super Patriots: The Origins of Civic Education in the United States.
Shermis, Samuel
Southern Social Studies Journal, v17 n1 p2-16 Fall 1991
Discusses social studies' evolution as a discipline from its 1890s origins through the twentieth century. Examines the objectives of historians, sociologists, and "super patriots" (proponents of the Americanism movement) in advancing citizenship training. Concludes that the failure to achieve some of the original goals of social studies may be because of those goals' inconsistency with patriotic indoctrination. (SG)
