SYNOPSIS : The author wrote this new edition of the most popular elementary social studies methods text on the market with the following three goals in mind: to present the most powerful social studies content and pedagogy for children in elementary school, to offer the material in simple and accessible ways, and to write in a first person active voice. The purpose of this book is to introduce new teachers to the world of social studies teaching and learning in elementary and middle schools. Geography, history, government and the other social sciences are delivered into the palm of the new teacher's hand along with a suite of tools for bringing social studies to life in the classroom. The book is organized into three sectionsβ€”the first orients the reader to the mission of social studies education to the increasingly diverse children we teach, the second concentrates on the curriculum, and the third deals with instruction, how we plan and teach this curriculum. Three central themes continue to pervade the bookβ€”democratic citizenship, diversity, and the social sciencesβ€”to ultimately encourage teachers to excite their students about closing the gap between social realities and democratic ideals. An exceptionally strong chapter on multicultural issues (Chapter 2) helps future teachers truly understand the changing demographics of the American classroom. Abridged NCSS standards and their classroom applications are found at www.myeducationlab.com.

SYNOPSIS : In this new text for the Education market, Susan Gibson uses a constructivist framework to guide teacher candidates learning how to teach Social Studies at the elementary level. The basis premise of constructivism is students learn by fitting new information together with what they already know, and students active engagement. Constructivism is the opposite of a didactic approach to teaching, wherein teachers lecture and students receive information sitting passively at their desks. Our author believes that teachers? beliefs about how students learn and the role the teacher plays in that learning affects their decision making across all aspects of planning, instruction, resource selection and reflective exercises.

To accommodate the visual preferences of today’s students, the easy-reading print text features bulleted lists and contemporary graphics. The program’s interactive approach and flexibility allow instructors to model the kinds of teaching principles and practices that students will want to use in their own elementary school classrooms. These principles and practices are integrated throughout the text and include active-learning strategies, application of constructivist principles, a focus on big ideas and thinking skills, use of the Internet, and modeling of best practices and performance-based assessments (based on INTASC and NCATE standards). As a result, the book serves as a springboard for classroom activities, website explorations, and/or instructor-led activities.
