Abstract

In its brief history, American social studies education has contrasting purposes (matter, method, and citizenship preparation) and paradigm (universal standard or adaptation to local interests). One constant has been the pursuit of the concrete reality of materials for practice: at first textbooks and other print materials and later additional media such as film. This study examines social studies teacher educators' use of print and film (or digital video) media in the context of presenting pre-service social studies teachers with models for social studies instruction. Our intention is to examine how the shifting technology exposes tensions and change within the aims of social studies as it moves into the 21st century.
