From the Back Cover:

With a strong focus on the civic ideas and values needed for students growing up in the 21st century, Social Studies for the Elementary and Middle Grades: A Constructivist Approach includes model lessons, best practices in teaching, and the latest on the constructivist approach, and demonstrates how to help diverse students construct important social studies concepts and skills.

 

Not only will this text guide you to teach social studies within a constructivist framework, but it also models that framework of guided inquiry in the organization of each chapter. Every chapter begins with an exploratory activity that challenges students to remember and reflect on their prior knowledge on the chapter's topic, moves into the more teacher-guided phase where students find explanations and activities that develop their understanding and social studies pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), and ends in an expansion phase in which students must apply the main ideas of the chapter to other school and life contexts.
