Civic Participation in Third Grade Social Studies Textbooks.
Wade, Rahima C.; Everett, Susan
Social Education, v58 n5 p308-11 Sep 1994
Asserts that, although active citizenship is heralded as the goal of social studies, few textbook studies have attempted to define or examine civic participation. Reports on a study of the treatment of citizenship in four widely used third-grade textbooks. Finds that, although the texts are largely supportive of mainstream political values, they encourage students to see themselves as active participants in their communities. (CFR)
