ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to clarify the characteristics of citizenship education in the social studies of the special education basic curriculum for the students with disabilities and to suggests challenges for improving the curriculum. For this purpose, I reviewed critically about the identity, goals, and contents of the social studies of the 2015 Revised Special Education Basic Curriculum. In the social studies of the basic curriculum, the identity of the social studies is defined as a subject that cultivates citizenship, and aims to raise citizens who have basic personality and skills necessary for life as a citizen rather than knowledge. In order to nurture these citizens, the contents of the social studies organized centered on learners' lives including not only related to social cognition but also contents related to the elements of independent living and moral education. The significance of this citizenship education is to place the identity of social education in citizen education and to pursue the curriculum centered on learners by fusing the contents of social science centered on the life of learners. However, it has the task of clarifying the identity as a social awareness subject, complementing the subject capacity considering various civic competencies to be raised in social studies, and organizing contents reflecting social and cultural experience suited to the age of life. Therefore, in the future development of social studies curriculum, more in-depth and sufficient discussion about these problems is needed.
