Taboo Topics: Cultural Restraint on Teaching Social Issues.
Evans, Ronald W.; Avery, Patricia G.; Pederson, Patricia Velde
Social Studies, v90 n5 p218-24 Sep-Oct 1999
Considers the taboo topics that social studies teachers avoid or de-emphasize, such as topics that tend to provoke strong emotional reactions. Addresses the reasons for the stifling of taboo topics and finds that the closer a topic is to students' lives the more likely the topic is labeled as taboo. (CMK)
