Format: Paperback
I've never been super confident about teaching Social Studies, but this book has tons of great information and ideas for future teachers. This book also has ways of integrating the subjects and can be used for more information for writing lessons and units and assessing. GREAT BOOK! WILL KEEP IT FOREVER!
