Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This supplemental text is an historical account of the beginning years of the social studies. Using the 1916 Social Studies report as a base, the book outlines the issues, contexts, and individuals that were influential in the genesis of the seminal social studies prototype program.

The author explains that many of our present interests such as critical thinking, decision making, inquiry, reflective thinking, foundational studies, and cultural literacy can be found within the texts of the 1916 social studies program. Saxe also shows that the roots of the social studies program are found in the social sciences and not the traditional history curriculum. Included are chronological time lines that serve to illustrate the growth of the social studies, as well as an extensive bibliography of the primary foundational works of the social studies, including the 1916 report. These materials greatly enhance the value of Saxe's work for social studies educators and students.

"The book makes appropriate and important distinctions between social studies and history as fields with distinct origins, traditions, and values. The author uses a great deal of primary source material that is often overlooked by other historians. The organization of the work is logical and straightforward; his analysis is solid. I think a book like this is long overdue." -- George L. Mehaffy, San Diego State University

David Warren Saxe is Professor-In-Charge of Social Studies Education at The Pennsylvania State University.
