The most popular elementary social studies methods text on the market, this comprehensive, stimulating introduction to social studies in elementary and middle schools presents the elements of a strong social studies curriculum, explains effective teaching methods, and presents a wealth of field-tested examples, exercises, activities, and lesson plans that bring the subject matter to life. It presents critically important ideas and sometimes-complex methods in a clear, straightforward, accessible manner, while focusing on teaching to help K-8 students develop social understanding and the ability to think and act as democratic citizens in a multicultural society. Beginning and new teachers get the understanding and tools they need to unleash their intelligence and creativity on the subject area, and see how they can make social studies a subject that students anticipate and enjoy and that gives purpose and context to reading, writing, science, and math. While continuing to blend theory and practice, this new edition of Social Studies in Elementary Education brings the book into the digital age, emphasizing teaching social studies well and stressing understanding of the practices of good social studies teaching. The key revisions include features that focus on reflection and discussion, issues and challenges, standards, learning to question, differentiated instruction, trends affecting school today, teaching in diverse classrooms, Response to Intervention (RTI), maps and mapping, using digital resources effectively in teaching, and selecting and using children's literature.
