From the Back Cover

Bring history to life with these classroom-ready materials and resources!


* Classroom community is fostered as learners discover similarities as well as differences in their backgrounds.
* Build upon the child's own cultural learning and experience to empower them as learners.
* Portray history as experiences, not as facts, to facilitate thinking and reasoning skills, enhance sense of self-worth, and pique their curiosity.
Consider what a difficult concept historical time is for young children. Children in the early grades are often unable to comprehend distinctions between decades and centuries. By the intermediate and middle grades, students have begun to make sense of historical time, but find the study of history itself remote and irrelevant to their own lives. Teachers must make every effort to portray them as experiences, not just facts. The portrayal of history as experience brings history to life, creating a learning environment where students find the study of history meaningful and fascinating at the same time. The thematic curriculum strands allow children to include themselves and their families in their growing understanding of history as relevant and alive. Thematic strands include: Culture; Time, Continuity, and Change; People, Places, and Environments; and Individual Development and Identity.

Format: Paperback
Good scholarship in social history is applied to developmentally appropriate elementary curriculum topics. Author shows how children even in kindergarten and the first grade can begin to learn about history and to enjoy the process of learning history. There is a well balanced presentation for all grades K-6. Clear directions and examples of the work of classroom teachers provide readers with help and prompt new ideas. This book would be helpful to parents, librarians, and museum workers as they seek tohelp children learn meaningful and interesting things about families, local communities, and the wide range of ethnic groups in America today. I place this book on the must have and use list for all elementary teachers interested in engaging children in active learning experiences.
