About the book:

Distinguished Teaching Professor Pamela Farris joins with leading experts, highly qualified in each area of elementary and middle school social studies, to continue a tradition of excellence that has been established in multiple editions. The Fifth Edition offers pre- and in-service teachers an accessible blend of theory and practice, with the NCSS Standards acting as the foundation for its interdisciplinary and multicultural focus. Full of practical yet creative ideas to stimulate students interest, this authoritative text is a valuable resource for helping learners to become good decision makers, use previously gained knowledge as a scaffold for further learning, develop a positive self-concept, gain an appreciation for the aesthetics of a subject, and become productive citizens. Outstanding features include: 1) developmentally appropriate NCSS Standards-Linked Lesson Plans are included within the chapters; 2) In the Classroom boxes enrich many of the concepts and offer teaching ideas; 3) examples of student work appear throughout the text; 4) up-to-date, annotated reading lists identify age-appropriate books for diverse learners; 5) Web sites and WebQuests are listed throughout the text and at the end of each chapter; 6) strategies for teaching students with special needs provide guidance for inclusive education; and 7) field-tested classroom activities serve as examples of how to offer students enjoyable and challenging learning experiences.
