Synopsis:

“How do I get across the important social studies content without being run-of-the-mill or ordinary?  How can I make social studies fun and still maintain control of the classroom?”

 

Dynamic Social Studies for Constructivist Classrooms , Ninth Edition shows teachers how to make social studies fun.  Yet it is also the most practical of social studies texts.  It is highly readable and offers a manageable length.  The author begins with the sound philosophical approach of constuctivism and then provides many practical examples of classroom instruction and creative tools to assist teachers in bringing this framework to life in the classroom.  Readers will feel they are being escorted through model social studies classrooms and will come away with a clear vision of the most effective, creative, and dynamic way to teach social studies.  Meanwhile, students will be learning important social studies content that will encourage them to become informed, caring citizens who will make a difference in our world.
