This text takes a clear stance: Social studies is about citizenship education - citizenship not only as a noun, but as a verb, something one DOES. Based on this clear curricular and pedagogical purpose, it lays out a holistic and multicultural three-part process for civic preparation: becoming informed, thinking it through, and taking action. Six outstanding teaching strategies and teaching/learning projects throughout bring this framework life.
