Social Studies in the School: Questions of Expectations and Effects


by Gerald Ponder 1981

This chapter addresses some of the questions raised in the debate by examining some of thestated purposes and procedures of the social studies curriculum within the context of the intellectual, political, and social systems that govern its operations. The essay is not a status report of curricular offerings nor a recommendation for new directions. Instead, the chapter contrasts some historically persistent conceptions of intent with descriptions of effects and classroom practice.
