The Anthology of Social Studies: Issues and Strategies for Elementary Teachers brings together the work of education scholars and the experiences of teachers, the best of theory and of practice, in a comprehensive collection of ideas and activities for elementary social studies. The twenty-seven chapters present a diversity of perspectives that provide context, insight, and direction for social studies teaching and learning. This updated edition of The Anthology of Social Studies presents a powerful and exciting vision of social studies. It has a stronger focus on elementary examples, a new chapter on teaching elementary students to think geographically, updated references, and a greater emphasis on the use of innovative technologies and digital resources in social studies. This collection blends specific, practical teaching suggestions with important discussions of the foundational issues at the heart of social studies teaching. It is an essential resource for pre-service and practising elementary teachers and curriculum developers.

Review:

The Anthology of Social Studies has been the backbone of my social studies education course for pre-service teachers, providing the overall theoretical framework for the course while at the same time providing practical tools for the classroom. It captures the enduring understandings that we hope our students walk into the classrooms with, ensuring that the learning experience will continue well beyond the covers of the book and the walls of our classroom. --Wendy D. Bokhorst-Heng, associate professor, Crandall University

The Anthology has proved an invaluable resource with chapter after chapter of essential learning for social studies teacher candidates; this book will continue on as a valued and well-used desktop companion as they embark on their teaching careers. --Joan M. Chambers, assistant professor, Lakehead University

The articles, with their wealth of activities and excellent ideas, are valuable whether the reader is a student teacher, a practising teacher, or an instructor at a university. Highly recommended. --Canadian Materials
