Porter (Eds.), Where Did Social Studies Go Wrong? This is not a difficult idea to understand, but it can take a lifetime to appreciate. Social sciences are a vital branch in the field of science. A notable exception to national curriculum patterns is the new "California Framework" (1988), which emphasizes history at all levels of the elementary school curriculum.

Goodlad's 1984 study confirms earlier reports that, even when students express a high interest in social studies topics, classroom treatment tends to reduce these topics to recitation of dates and places and displaces opportunities to explore relationships, draw inferences about human behavior, and make in-depth cultural comparisons. The selection committee looks for books that emphasize human relations, represent a diversity of groups and are sensitive to a broad range of cultural experiences, present an original theme or a fresh slant on a traditional topic, are easily readable and of high literary quality, and have a pleasing format and, when appropriate, illustrations that enrich the text.

Here again, there is synergy with, say, medicine: getting sick affects your ability to be economically productive. Children are often inclined to see situations from a moral point of view, though they may not be able to describe it as such. According to Socrates and Plato, ' the aim of education is to attain knowledge '. The teacher is the most critical element in the improvement and transformation of the social studies curriculum. Fields and subfields of political science include political economy, political theory and philosophy, civics and comparative politics, theory of direct democracy, apolitical governance, participatory direct democracy, national systems, cross-national political analysis, political development, international relations, foreign policy, international law, politics, public administration, administrative behaviour, public law, judicial behaviour, and public policy.

The call for alternative assessments only serves to highlight the importance of rethinking current practice in social studies as we recognize once again the close link between the over-arching goal of public education and that of social studies. Teachers must be willing to include technology-based components within every lesson to help students bridge gaps. Biochemists and biophysicists study the chemical and physical principles of living things and of biological processes, such as cell development, growth, heredity, and disease.

Members of the Committee are united in their belief that rigorous social science inquiry must cross disciplinary boundaries and that it should be based on an understanding of classic and contemporary social theory and on an intimate knowledge of the history and culture of the places we study. I have suggested that social educators question the historically affirmed educational role of cultural heritage institutions, to take advantage of the large-scale digitization projects occurring within the discipline, and to work in developing and advancing with students a critical view of the digital technologies as a space for learning.
