Teaching the Social and Behavioral Sciences in K-12 Education: Past, Present, Future


November 17, 2016

The goals of this seminar were to understand contemporary efforts to teach social and behavioral science in K-12 education, and determine next steps. Presenters and participants examined new data on the public perception of SBS in K-12, and the current efforts and goals of five SBS disciplines—psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science, and economics – and possible linkages to the social studies and science curricula. The seminar concluded with a discussion of priorities within and across these SBS disciplines for supporting the teaching of SBS in the future.
