In this contributed collection, twenty-three teachers explain their successful strategies for teaching the social studies disciplines in a whole language context.If This Is Social Studies covers contemporary subjects, traditional topics, well-known projects, social studies n the community, and multicultural matters.
Teachers at elementary through middle and high school levels will find this book's holistic approach to social studies a refreshing departure and a source of new, practical ideas. Indeed, the diversity of ideas and styles is as broad as the book's subject!
