For courses in Social Studies Methods for Elementary School.This major revision of a very popular text asks future teachers to look upon their pupils as "young social scientists"-and to engage their natural spirit of wonder by using subject matter to teach problem solving, critical thinking, and the skills of real-world inquiry. The text's sound research base informs without overwhelming; its wealth of examples and strategies never become just a "cookbook." And, because no single instructional method can achieve all of the goals of elementary social studies curricula, this text proposes that it is good teaching-teaching that is flexible and varied-that will assist young "political scientists, historians, and geographers" to become informed, rational, and responsive citizens.
