The decisions as to what methods are to be used in determining learning experiences and materials to be used in teaching the social studies, the following questions for consideration in the solution of this problem include: 1. Are children given opportunities for initiative, self-direction, and responsibility? 2. Do children have opportunities to work independently or in groups in collecting, organizing, interpreting and presenting data? 3. Is sufficient flexibility of the program given to meet the needs and interests of students? 4. What effort is made toward utilization of many kinds of materials and resources? 5. Is provision made for development of desirable behavior patterns as reflective thinking, work habits, study, skills, knowledge, social attitudes, interests and appreciations?
In recent years there have been various methods used in teaching the social studies. Since there has been much interest in this particular subject, the writer has made this study to investigate methods of instruction in teaching the social studies, and to give results of this investigation.
