Social Studies and the "Dummy Run." Current Concerns.
McKay, Roberta
Canadian Social Studies, v31 n4 p166 Sum 1997
Identifies "dummy runs" as those educational approaches and exercises that are unrelated to any real-life experience or goal. For example, writing a model business letter to a fictitious business. Maintains that social studies educators should avoid this approach and emphasize "real world" relevance and citizenship education. (MJP)
