Taboo Topics: Cultural Restraint on Teaching Social Issues.
Evans, Ronald W.; Avery, Patricia G.; Pederson, Patricia Velde
Clearing House, v73 n5 p295-302 May-Jun 2000
Presents a cultural analysis of the process by which controversial subject matter in social studies remains deemphasized or omitted. Examines research related to taboo topics in schools. Notes that the closer and more meaningful a topic is to students' lives, the more likely it is to be taboo. Offers practical suggestions for teachers to explore controversial topics via issues-centered curriculum. (SR)
