Teaching activities books are wonderful resources for providing ideas to teachers to enliven their lessons and help their students connect to the curriculum. These books, however, are difficult to locate or search for by curriculum topic and grade level. Social Studies Teaching Activities Books: An Annotated Resource Guide helps solve this dilemma by bringing together a selected list of teaching activities books for one area of the curriculum - social studies. Primary emphasis is placed on those books that are written for the elementary and middle school grades. These annotated books appear in the main body of the book and are arranged by curriculum area topic and grade level. Thus, as the teacher is planning his or her lesson on a particular topic, this book can be consulted to locate books that will give various teaching and learning activities for that topic and grade level desired.

Social Studies for the Twenty-First Century, Third Edition weaves theory, curriculum, methods, and assessment into a comprehensive model to guide middle and secondary teachers in setting objectives; planning lessons, units, and courses; choosing classroom strategies; and constructing tests for some of the field's most popular and enduring programs. It offers practical, interesting, exciting ways to teach social studies and a multitude of instructional and professional resources for teachers. The text includes separate chapters on teaching each of the major areas of the social studies curriculum. Its reflective and integrative framework emphasizes building imagination, insight, and critical thinking into everyday classrooms; encourages problem-solving attitudes and behavior; and provokes analysis, reflection, and debate. New in the Third Edition: *summaries of recent research, particularly in history education, that have been published since the last edition; *increased attention to social studies standards, as well as those for civics, economics, and history; *an enriched view of teaching history and social studies with a wide array of sources ranging from material objects through primary sources on to art, music, and literature; *tightening of the text to make it shorter and more pointed, including a few provocative new ideas; *more and better-organized ideas for classroom group and individual activities and cooperative learning; *expanded appendices on instructional resources include the rapidly growing use of Web sites; *new visuals that are better integrated into the text and which teachers can use in their classrooms as lessons in visual literacy; and *continued efforts to inject a bit of humor and self-criticism into a field of education most students view as a sizeable trunk of dead and deadly facts. Social Studies for the Twenty-First Century, Third Edition is a primary text for secondary and middle social studies methods courses.

August ist anders. Dennoch wünscht er sich, wie alle Jungen in seinem Alter, kein Außenseiter zu sein. Weil er seit seiner Geburt so oft am Gesicht operiert werden musste, ist er noch nie auf eine richtige Schule gegangen. Aber jetzt soll er in die fünfte Klasse kommen. Er weiß, dass die meisten Kinder nicht absichtlich gemein zu ihm sind. Am liebsten würde er gar nicht auffallen. Doch nicht aufzufallen ist nicht leicht, wenn man so viel Mut und Kraft besitzt, so witzig, klug und großzügig ist - wie August.
