Designed for preservice teachers, this text consolidates social studies content into a framework for practical instruction and lesson planning. It places social studies in a thoroughly modern context and explores how such factors as language diversity and standards--at the local, state, and national level--affect teachers. The text retains its hallmark features, such as model unit lessons, teacher-tested activities, technology updates, and authentic children's work, and the Resource Handbook serves as a valuable tool for on-the-job use.The emphasis on current topics includes coverage of constructivist learning, cooperative learning, service learning, character education, and the teaching of children with limited English proficiency.Specific examples from the NCSS help students connect standards to the model lessons and activities presented in the text.Welton, David A. is the author of 'Children and Their World Strategies for Teaching Social Studies', published 2004 under ISBN 9780618376445 and ISBN 0618376445.
