A practical guide that helps elementary social studies teachers activate a dynamic learning experience, inspiring children to understand and participate in the world around them.


Practical and dynamic are the hallmarks of the popular Dynamic Social Studies, and this new edition steps up its focus with a fresh design and a number of updates that give readers a clear vision of the most effective ways to teach social studies to elementary school students—with the hope of inspiring them to become informed, rational, and culturally responsive citizens. Using a constructivist framework, key instructional approaches, literacy-based pedagogy, text sets, activities, and illustrative classroom scenarios, the book focuses on motivation, creativity, and the excellent examples of experienced teachers to help readers breathe life into their social studies teaching. 

 

In addition to new, authentic classroom scenarios, the Eleventh Edition also includes four new chapters (5-8) that reflect current best practices and align to the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies Standards, and the Common Core Standards. Current, practical, and dynamic, this book provides the foundation that pre- and in-service teachers need to create the most effective, creative elementary social studies classrooms. The Enhanced Pearson eText version includes embedded video examples, video exploration exercises, and self-check quizzes.
