Elementary Social Studies is an activities-based text, based on the assumption that if you are actually involved in social studies teaching and learning, you are more likely to understand and implement effective instructional practices in the elementary school classroom.  It focuses on the process of teaching, and includes relevant information about emerging technologies, media literacy and environmental education.

Review:

I have always found it to be on solid ground theoretically, and to contain a wealth of appropriate and immediately applicable ideas for classroom inquiry...It has an important emphasis on teaching critical thinking and decision making... I like the sections on values- a topic that can scare new teachers if not handled carefully...Pre-service teachers find the book interesting, conversational in tone, and useful for their student teaching experiences...It is well-organized, with a sensible conceptual flow and a helpful index... It is Canadian, so the examples are always relevant... Multiple editions have helped it stay current.

Dr. Linda Farr Darling, Department of Curriculum Studies, UBC

 

The addition of web links, glossaries and resources at the end of each chapter rather than in an appendix is key.

- Ruth Hay, University of Western Ontario, Faculty of Education

 

The author has a writing style which makes the text very engaging and easy to read. His examples and particularly Canadian anecdotes are welcomed connectors for our education students. The style is informal and appealing...The text is Canadian and practical in focus and it contains a treasure trove of activities that can be used by education students in their social studies teaching.

- Dr. Sharon Murray, Associate Professor, Department of Education, St. Thomas University
