An Investigation into the Teaching of Social Studies in Primary ‘T' Schools in the Territory of Papua and New Guinea

Social Studies Syllabuses in Papua and New Guinea have been organised around particular topics from which the teacher must choose the most relevant for his class. This is difficult enough where patterns of living are held commonly; but where, as in Papua and New Guinea, social diversity is so wide and varied the problem is highly magnified. This project was designed to examine the feasibility of using the ‘concept approach’ in teaching the subject.
