The Common School: Neglected Content in the High School Social Studies Classroom?
Goetz, William W.
Clearing House, v72 n4 p245-52 Mar-Apr 1999
Encourages social studies teachers and curriculum coordinators to consider, in their units on the antebellum period, the common school movement. Notes useful classroom strategies and recommends use of short readings from primary sources. Suggests that students will be fascinated by the intellectual and social forces that motivated discussion of common schools and will quickly create comparisons between past and present. (SR)
