Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

The social studies curriculum is in an era of transition. It is a complex, multidimensional, often confusing, but tremendously challenging subject. Because research and study in this area double and redouble in very short periods of time, educators face the problem of remaining informed of new developments.

As the school librarian participates in all areas of curriculum planning, a knowledge of theory and practical application is necessary. In the social studies curriculum a review of its evolution in American education is helpful. This includes general aims and objectives, its history in American education, present criticism of its relevance to today's society, emerging trends, and the manner in which teachers organize content for use in learning experiences. Chapter two of this paper deals with these topics.
