Summary "Randi Stone transports readers into the lively classrooms of award-winning teachers in this collection of outstanding methods for teaching social studies to diverse elementary, middle, and high school learners. Like its companion volumes for teaching writing, mathematics, and science, Best Practices for Teaching Social Studies presents firsthand accounts from educators offering fresh ideas and inquiry-based techniques to build student confidence, increase academic achievement, and develop critical thinking skills. Highlights include master teachers' tips on how to: organize and produce oral history projects, use technology to explore diversity, teach the art of geography and the geography of art, put the "social" back into social studies, and more. Beginning and experienced teachers alike will discover an abundance of creative teaching practices to strengthen the social studies curriculum."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE.
