Discipline, Knowledge, and Social Education.
Nelson, Jack L.
International Journal of Social Education, v6 n2 p41-50 Fall 1991
Discusses the educational reform efforts to reorganize the social studies curriculum in the United States. Criticizes a return to conservative, traditional approaches to social studies than emphasize history and geography while ignoring more contemporary ideas. Suggests that, to develop a discipline of social studies, more scholarly pursuit and critical examination is necessary. (DK)
