Second Edition

Kathryn M. Obenchain  ♦  Ronald V. Morris

 

This second edition of 50 Social Studies Strategies for K-8 Classrooms continues the tradition of providing effective, practical strategies that create meaningful social studies experiences for students in various classroom arrangements.  It also focuses on the connections between social studies and literacy.  New strategies have also been added, including Teaching Core Democratic ideas, Museum Exhibits, and Virtual Field Trips.

 

User-Friendly Organization

  • Part One provides two student-centered strategies requiring higher-level thinking (discovery learning and inquiry learning) and two teacher-centered strategies that foster a collaborative and supportive learning community (community building and rule making).
  • Part Two contains 46 strategies listed alphabetically for the reader's convenience.
  • Multiple assessment types provide educators with a wide variety of appropriate tools.

 

Each Strategy Includes

  • Appropriate grade level designation and National Council for Social Studies (NCSS) standard
  • Introduction that provides the rationale as to why the strategy is beneficial to social studies students, supported by research where appropriate
  • Specific outlines on how to facilitate and direct the strategies
  • Classroom examples that illustrate how the strategy should be implemented
  • References and resources that provide scholarly support, additional readings, websites, or professional organizations related to the topic
