SUMMARY

Social Studies for the Twenty-First Century, Third Edition weaves theory, curriculum, methods, and assessment into a comprehensive model to guide middle and secondary teachers in setting objectives; planning lessons, units, and courses; choosing classroom strategies; and constructing tests for some of the field's most popular and enduring programs. It offers practical, interesting, exciting ways to teach social studies and a multitude of instructional and professional resources for teachers. The text includes separate chapters on teaching each of the major areas of the social studies curriculum. Its reflective and integrative framework emphasizes building imagination, insight, and critical thinking into everyday classrooms; encourages problem-solving attitudes and behavi∨ and provokes analysis, reflection, and debate. Throughout the text, all aspects of curriculum and instruction are viewed from a tripartite perspective that divides social studies instruction into didactic (factual), reflective (analytical), and affective (judgmental) components. These three components are seen as supporting one another, building the groundwork for taking stands on issues, past and present. At the center is the author's belief that the heart and soul of social studies instruction, perhaps all teaching, lies in stimulating the production of ideas; looking at knowledge from others' viewpoints; and formulating for oneself a set of goals, values, and beliefs that can be explained and justified in open discussion. New in the Third Edition: * Summaries of recent research, particularly in history education, that have been published since the last edition; * Increased attention to social studies standards, as well as those for civics, economics, and history; * An enriched view of teaching history and social studies with a wide array of sources ranging from material objects through primary sources on to art, music, and literature; * Tightening of the text to make it shorter and more pointed, including a few provocative new ideas; * More and better-organized ideas for classroom group and individual activities and cooperative learning;* Expanded appendices on instructional resources include the rapidly growing use of websites; * New visuals that are better integrated into the text and which teachers can use in their classrooms as lessons in visual literacy; and * Continued efforts to inject a bit of humor and self-criticism into a field of education most students view as a sizeable trunk of dead and deadly facts. Social Studies for the Twenty-First Century, Third Editionis a primary text for secondary and middle social studies methods courses.Zevin, Jack is the author of 'Social Studies for the Twenty-first Century Methods And Materials for Teaching in Middle And Secondary Schools', published 2007 under ISBN 9780805855586 and ISBN 0805855580.
