About the Author

I teach in the College of Education at the University of Washington in Seattle where I chair the Social Studies Education Program. I study K—12 social studies education and, in particular, the civic development of youth. I’m especially interested in the ways civic education, multicultural education, and global education overlap. My other books are Renewing the Social Studies Curriculum (1991); Educating the Democratic Mind (1996); Education for Democracy: Contexts, Curricula, and Assessments (2002); Teaching Democracy: Unity and Diversity in Public Life (2003); and Social Studies Today: Research & Practice (2010). I am the editor of the ‘Research and Practice’ column for Social Education, the flagship journal of the National Council for the Social Studies.

I was born and raised in Englewood, Colorado, on Denver’s south side, and taught school for ten years in Adams County on Denver’s north side. I earned the B.A. in Political Science (University of Colorado, Boulder), the M.A. in Social Foundations of Education (University of Colorado, Denver), and the Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction (University of Washington, Seattle). I live in Seattle with the rain and my wife, Sheila Valencia.

This textbook was a little more cumbersome to read however it does drive home the need to teach social studies and teach it well. The author is really passionate about the subject and the information is very appropriate and on point with regard to today's social studies needs.

I ordered this book brand new on Amazon Prime and it arrived within the expected two days. It was in perfect condition, however, pages 77 - 100 are printed upside down and half of the print is missing.

Recieved fairly quickly. Product was exactly what I expected. I'm only renting it since I know there's more current books out there but this is the one my professor wanted us to use.
