$32.95Order Code: TCP100 ISBN : 9780807754085
Designed to help both novice and experienced educators, this guide provides an innovative framework for embedding social studies instruction on social justice within the context of literacy. In addition to sample lessons, pedagogic strategies (with specific Common Core connections indicated), and reflection exercises that aid implementation of concepts into the classroom, the book explains how teachers can restructure, reshape, and manipulate mandated curriculum materials to teach from a critical perspective.
"If you are a teacher, or preparing to become a teacher, this is a book you will want to keep so that you can refer back to it again and again. If you are a teacher educator, this is a book that will help you connect demands on teachers today with a compelling vision of academically rich, student-centered, social justice teaching. In either case, you are in for a treat."
—From the Foreword by Christine Sleeter, professor emeritus, California State University Monterey Bay
"This is an important contribution for pre-service teachers and those in districts who are willing to think deeply about how to build content knowledge in an integrated fashion by combining social studies and language arts. Much more attention to social studies from the perspective of social justice is needed!"
—Donna Ogle, professor emeritus, National-Louis University
