Making Social Studies Relevant
In defining our conference theme of “Relevance” one only need to consider the parable of the “Three Blind Men and the Elephant.” The first blind man took hold of the elephant’s trunk and said, “Social studies needs to be about real world problems.” The second blind man took hold of the elephant’s tail, and he uttered, “Social Studies needs to be engaging.” The third blind man touched the leg of the elephant and he shouted, “Social Studies needs to have strong content.”
It’s a jungle out there! Please help PCSS focus on the content and the pedagogy that jointly contribute to sound social studies instruction by being part of the 2012 Conference.
