discuss nature and scope of social studies as an integrated subject of school curriculum?

Because social studies covers all of socioties subjects, how people learn is a part of social studies. The social dynamics of the school setting are a representitave microcosm of the scocioty the school is surrounded by. Applying the information from social studies into the design of a school's curriculum is critical to its effectiveness.

Social studies are designed to make students effective citizens in their society. Without knowledge of the society and its culture, it is difficult to effectively particpate in the society. However, since general social science is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "social studies curriculum" to get these possible sources:
