For Social Studies in Early Childhood Education and Curriculum in Early Childhood Education courses.

 

This popular text provides a multitude of practical ideas, suggestions, and activities that prospective early childhood teachers can use to both interest young children in social studies and integrate social studies with other sciences, art, literature, mathematics, reading, and writing. Because play is the basic means of young children's learning, the text offers a full chapter on the topic and incorporates ideas for “playing” throughout the material. TThis edition includes three new chapters to offer all of the 10 NCSS Thematic Strands. In addition, there is a new emphasis on the use of such technology as e-mail, digital cameras, and the World Wide Web in this edition. Finally, current NAEYC standards for quality, curriculum, and professional preparation are thoroughly incorporated.

    From the Back Cover:

     

    The social studies are treated in this text as an integrated experience--combined with other content areas, and involving the child, school, family, and community. They are also presented as a continual experience, one that builds as children move from a child-care setting or a preschool to kindergarten and the primary grades. In addition to respecting the whole child and taking a play-based approach, this new edition includes: 

     

    • All ten of the National Council for Social Studies thematic strands, with new chapters on Civics and Government, Global Connections, and Culture, Diversity and Values.
    • A focus on culture, diversity, and inclusion: (1) Chapter 6 offers a solid foundation of curriculum methods and practices to teach young children to value themselves, each other, and our world and (2) Each chapter suggests practices to embrace diversity and provide full inclusion into the social studies curriculum for all children, including those with special needs and individual differences.
    • Ideas for using current technologies in today’s classrooms, from digital cameras to obtaining resources from the Internet.
    • Suggestions for incorporating content and activities from the visual arts, music, movement, science, health, mathematics and language arts.
