E. Wayne Ross
SUNY Press, Nov 12, 2014 - Education - 290 pages
The newly revised edition of The Social Studies Curriculum presents the definitive overview of the primary issues facing teachers creating learning experiences for students in social studies. The book connects the diverse elements of the social studies curriculum—global education, social issues-centered education, and the roles of history, and the arts and sciences—thereby offering a unique and contemporary perspective, one that separates it from other texts used in today’s social studies classrooms. Thoroughly updated, this edition includes new material on the use of literature in social studies classrooms, inclusive education, citizenship education, and the impact of standards and high stakes testing on social studies curriculum and pedagogy.
