This book is a first of its kind that locates the teaching and learning of social science within the larger perspective of education and its aims. It presents major debates and critical perspectives on social science pedagogy, curriculum design, and textbook writing. It emphasizes the need to bring the teaching of social science into the realm of pedagogical theory – beyond the confines of ideological debate. The social science curriculum of Eklavya - a non-profit, non-government organization that develops and field tests innovative educational programs and trains resource people to implement these programs through a network of education resource centers located in Madhya Pradesh, India – is reviewed by a team of professionals from various disciplines within the social sciences, education, and communication.
