The De Facto National Curriculum in U.S. Elementary Social Studies: Critique of a Representative Example.
Brophy, Jere
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v24 n5 p401-47 Sep-Oct 1992
Critiques an elementary social studies program by analyzing commercially available curriculum materials. Discusses goals, content selection, organization and sequencing, and explication in the text. Suggests that publishers should (1) shift from content coverage objectives to more general social education purposes; (2) connect information in networks structured around powerful ideas; and (3) incorporate skills within goals-driven program development.
