SOCIAL STUDIES FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS
Teaching to Learn, Learning to Teach
Starting from the premise that what and how teachers choose to teach must reflect their broader understanding of society and history, Author Alan J. Singer suggests units, lessons, projects, and activities to match his goals. Often activity-based, project-based, or controversy-based, his lesson ideas include down-to-earth assessment tips designed to ensure lessons stay student-centered and effective. Lessons are also geared to help teachers address standards, promote literacy, and use technology in the classroom.
“This text has a smooth, accessible writing style and engaging examples from real practice… Students love it. I surveyed my students and they are unanimous in their praise… Most plan to keep it as a reference in their classrooms.”
