For teachers, Melber, a museum education consultant, and Hunter (Wagner College) present 25 active, inquiry-based strategies for integrating language arts and social studies in grades K-8, to help teachers move away from textbook essay questions. Strategies include hands-on exploration, interaction with primary sources, and critical thinking activities for building research skills, learning about the community, and understanding multiple voices and histories, and historical and global contexts, with connections to other areas like visual arts, music, and economics. Strategies incorporate modifications for grade levels, special needs students, and English language learners. Suggested assessments, connections to standards, and samples of student work are included. There is no index. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
