Summary
  • After the No Child Left Behind Act went into effect, many school districts cut class time for social studies in favor of tested subjects like math and language arts. Some elementary teachers spend only 12 minutes per week teaching social studies. The good news is that social studies lessons can be incorporated into nearly any subject
  • In order for today's children to succeed as adults, they need a solid foundation of life skills inculcated at a young age. Social studies is key to building this critical knowledge, yet less attention is being paid to social studies in elementary schools, even as this subject becomes more essential. The authors of this text have a solution: use picture books as dual-purpose texts that fulfill more than just language arts needs, and take the time dedicated to those lessons to simultaneously teach social studies
  • Each chapter of this text is organized around one of the National Council for the Social Studies' Ten Thematic Strands, covering diverse and engaging topics ranging from community and individuality to science and technology. This book serves as a vital resource for classroom teachers, methods professors, staff developers, and curriculum writers who prioritize keeping social studies a part of the elementary school curriculum. --Book Jacket
