I teach in the College of Education at the University of Washington in Seattle where I chair the Social Studies Education Program. I study K—12 social studies education and, in particular, the civic development of youth. I’m especially interested in the ways civic education, multicultural education, and global education overlap. My other books are Renewing the Social Studies Curriculum (1991); Educating the Democratic Mind (1996); Education for Democracy: Contexts, Curricula, and Assessments (2002); Teaching Democracy: Unity and Diversity in Public Life (2003); and Social Studies Today: Research & Practice (2010). I am the editor of the ‘Research and Practice’ column for Social Education, the flagship journal of the National Council for the Social Studies.
I was born and raised in Englewood, Colorado, on Denver’s south side, and taught school for ten years in Adams County on Denver’s north side. I earned the B.A. in Political Science (University of Colorado, Boulder), the M.A. in Social Foundations of Education (University of Colorado, Denver), and the Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction (University of Washington, Seattle). I live in Seattle with the rain and my wife, Sheila Valencia.
