Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

State-of-the-art in perspective, this text provides a solid introduction to the purposes of social studies, to the excitement, fun, and nature of the social science disciplines, and to the variety of methods that teachers can use with their pupils to promote growth toward informed and responsible citizenship. Highly practical in approach, it not only tells what should be done, but details how to do it. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
The authors have written a book that is extremely practical. As a student in a methods class, I was able to use the ideas in the classroom where I was placed. My master teacher was impressed with what I had to offer and purchased a copy of the book for himself. I appreciate the blend of theory and practice the book offers. Practical applications are important, but without the theoretical perspectives they mean nothing. This book gives us both. I recommend it to new teachers especially. It was obviously written by people who have spent time in classrooms and who really know social studies.

Format: Paperback
This book is uncommon for the textbooks I have found. The chapters are all roughly 20 pages long. They do not waste time on a lot of filler and excellent lesson examples can be found.

Format: Hardcover
This book is not for those who have experience in the social studies, or experience in working in classrooms.
It presents a lot of vague theory and not many concrete ideas on how to get subject matter taught to your students. YOu had best hope if this book is a required text that your professor has a passion for social studies,and has ideas on how to convey all that social studies really has to offer.
