Teachers are responsible for delivering, selecting, and implementing learning activities for their classrooms. They must consider the best approaches to engage their students as well as to meet the school's standards in instruction. Here is a practical how-to book to supplement the social studies curriculum. It places at the teacher's disposal, hundreds of classroom-tested activities that build learner support and interest in Social Studies (grades 6-12) content while at the same time being quick and low-cost to implement. Many of the lessons and activities can be easily adapted to existing lessons and may serve as a bridge to younger generations of learners. Both experienced and brand new teachers can benefit from this book.
