No matter where you turn in today's schools, everyone is talking about integration - integration of knowledge, of skills, of processes, of subjects. Yet for the past two decades, teachers have been told to isolate skills: to teach one concept at a time, guiding students through sequential steps. How can teachers move toward a more holistic classroom and still maintain control over what students know and understand? Seeing the Whole Through Social Studies grew out of Tarry Lindquist's twelve-year exploration of ways to network knowledge, skills, and teaching strategies across the curriculum using social studies as the framework. Her text is about reorganizing curriculum and choosing instructional strategies to make learning integrative, meaningful, value-based, active, and challenging for both students and teachers. Throughout the book Lindquist blends theory with a colleague-to-colleague, "you are there" exchange - reflecting her philosophy that the best learning combines the head, the heart, andthe hands,,with a dash of humor thrown in.Tarry Lindquist is the author of 'Seeing the Whole Through Social Studies, 1st edition', published 1995 under ISBN 9780435089023 and ISBN 0435089021.
