Completely updated, the Seventh Edition presents social studies within a thoroughly modern framework, exploring how factors such as the "information age," globalization, and increasing diversity will impact teachers. A new chapter structure provides an improved framework for learning and highlights key themes such as diversity, technology, and standards throughout.
Children and Their World consolidates social studies content into a comprehensible framework for preservice teachers, providing an excellent practical resource for classroom lesson-planning. Its model student activities include dialogues, suggestions on how to develop curriculum material for teaching particular lessons, and cases presented with procedures about their use with students.
