95 anos de ensino de sociologia no Ensino Médio

95 years of teaching sociology in High School

Michael DeCesare Sobre o autor

Resumos

O centenário da Associação Americana de Sociologia, em 2005, oferece uma oportunidade para os sociólogos refletirem sobre o ensino de sociologia, em qualquer lugar e em todos os lugares que isso acontece. No espírito de contribuir para a história do ensino de sociologia nos Estados Unidos, este trabalho descreve a história de cerca de 95 anos do ensino de sociologia no Ensino Médio. Eu invoco descrições de cursos publicados escritos por professores de sociologia do Ensino Médio e estudos empíricos realizados por sociólogos acadêmicos. Eles demonstram que cursos de sociologia do passado do Ensino Médio têm focado principalmente na análise dos problemas sociais e os eventos atuais, e sobre a promoção da educação para a cidadania.

The American Sociological Association's centennial in 2005 affords sociologists an opportunity to reflect on the teaching of sociology - anywhere and everywhere that it happens. In the spirit of contributing to the history of teaching sociology in the United States, this paper outlines the roughly 95-year history of the teaching of high school sociology. I rely upon published course descriptions written by high school sociology teachers and empirical studies conducted by academic sociologists. They demonstrate that past high school sociology courses have focused primarily on examining social problems and current events, and on promoting citizenship education.
