From the Publisher:

State-of-the-art in perspective, this text provides a solid introduction to the purposes of social studies, to the excitement, fun, and nature of the social science disciplines, and to the variety of methods that teachers can use with their pupils to promote growth toward informed and responsible citizenship. Highly practical in approach, it not only tells what should be done, but details how to do it.
