In its latest refinement, the Sixth Edition of Professor Farris's widely assigned, well-priced core textbook for pre- and in-service social studies teachers continues its twenty-year record for balanced, accessible, timely, creative, and strategy-filled coverage. Farris, along with experts in the core disciplines of social studies, offers a variety of proven multicultural, diverse, and interdisciplinary techniques that are sensitive to the needs of all elementary and middle school learners.
As always, the presentation of concepts and objectives--attentively aligned to the most current NCSS Standards--remains user-friendly and pedagogically rich. Early chapters contain instructional strategies and processes (including assessment and evaluation), while later chapters focus on specific content areas and themes. A wealth of lesson plans and thematic units appear throughout the text, as well as suggestions for integrating literature for children and young adults.
In addition to updated examples drawn from current events, refreshed annotated literature lists, and revised technology and Internet resources, the latest edition includes discussions of Common Core State Standards for Social Studies and Response to Intervention (RtI). One of the primary goals of a quality social studies curriculum is to equip students with problem-solving and decision-making skills, as well as the ability to integrate these skills into a framework for being responsible citizens. The distinguished Farris text never loses sight of these goals.
