Social Studies Education in East Asian Contexts
The book explores the state of social studies education within selected East Asian societies and provides some insights into distinctive classroom practices.
In an increasingly volatile and unpredictable world, the education of young people who both understand the contexts in which they are growing up and see the need for engaging with them is a top priority. This task falls to social studies education which carries the responsibility for inducting young people into their social world and helping them to see the role they can play within it. This is particularly important in East Asia where strong economic growth, long held cultural values and diverse political systems create an environment that challenges young people on multiple fronts. This book, with its team of regional authors, shows how different societies in the region are dealing with these challenges and what can be expected from future citizens.
The book will appeal to policy makers, researchers and teachers interested in the current state of social studies education in East Asian societies.
