The "New Social Studies"--Retrospect and Prospect.
Massialas, Byron G.
Social Studies, v83 n3 p120-24 May-Jun 1992
Describes the beginnings and development of the New Social Studies as an attempt to foster citizen ability to make decisions on major issues. Suggests that the movement ended because of commercialization of materials, lack of a research base, failure to consider the personalities of teacher and student, and failure to consider the hidden curriculum.
