This book [is] designed to assist preservice and inservice middle and secondary teachers in becoming more effective teachers of social studies. [It] is divided into three major parts. In Part 1, [the authors] examine the origins and evolving state of the social studies and citizenship education across the United States. This segment provides a window into the dynamics of the profession and a feel for the ferment, controversies, and challenges that characterize social studies teaching and learning in the middle and secondary grades. It also includes a discussion of ways to move the walls of the classroom beyond the school and incorporate the community into the social studies classroom. This part of the book also offers ideas on how to advance the professional growth of social studies teachers. Part 2 focuses on the art, science, and craft of social studies teaching against the backdrop of engaging students in knowledge construction. This part of the text draws heavily on grounded theory, research, and practitioner wisdom in formulating instructi0onal models, applications, and examples.... Part 3 examines approaches to analyzing and improving social studies instruction while incorporating emerging technologies. These approaches include ways to create a positive classroom environment and provide for students with special needs through individualizing instruction. In addition, this section of the text addresses the implications of the rich cultural diversity within our nation. -Pref
