Comprehensive in scope, but streamlined in form, this widely-adopted exploration of social studies in elementary education is exceptionally up to date -- offering a solid foundation in both traditional and cutting-edge theory and pedagogy. It details the mission of social studies education, considers the diversity of children in today's social studies classrooms, addresses the social studies curriculum (what is taught), and explores effective instruction (how it is taught).From the Back Cover:
