Visualizing Elementary Social Studies Methods (08 Edition)

Visualizing Elementary Social Studies Methods (08 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An excellent resource for social studies teachers, this book will help them learn about and reflect on their responsibilities in our society. It focuses on classroom-based experiences and real-world contexts. The teaching methods discussed are also closely associated to social studies subject matter so they can be integrated into the actual classroom. Each chapter also examines how social studies is situated within the larger elementary curriculum to demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of the instruction.

Book News Annotation:

Through rich visual presentations, this debut edition of a text for pre-service teachers presents social studies teaching methods and issues as embedded in social studies subject matter. The text features four main sections: the purposes of social studies, the relationship between subject matter and methods, the interdisciplinary nature of social studies, and planning, teaching, and assessment processes. Color visuals create the foundation for the text, and include diagrams, graphs, maps, photographs, and illustrations drawn from the National Geographic Society collections and other sources. The visuals include spreads focusing on key concepts, process diagrams, lessons that explain a specific instructional plan for teaching, and explorations of social studies issues through the lens of culture and society. Other pedagogical features include learning objectives, margin glossary terms, critical and creative thinking questions, and quizzes. The text can be used in a one-semester class devoted to teaching social studies or as part of a general methods course that includes social studies.
