Summary Ways That Work is an idea book from start to finish, modeling several different ways social studies content can be organized in elementary and middle school classrooms. Each chapter identifies a specific standard and a goal, presents strategies to help you achieve the goal, outlines how to put the strategies into place, describes essential skills you can develop, suggests ways you can incorporate other subject areas, especially language arts and literature, and presents proven assessment techniques. Together, the chapters illustrate that there is no one way to teach social studies - that the magic of teaching social studies lies in the richness of the available content, the variety of strategies to choose from, and the diversity of viewpoints to explore.
