Now More Than Ever: Social Studies in the 21st Century examines the state of social studies and history education in America while laying out an ambitious program of reform and rejuvenation. In this work Dr. Bryant presents three strategies for reinvigorating the study and teaching of history: 1. "Social Studies" should be history-centered and not a "catch-all" course. 2. Social Studies teachers should utilize a constructivist, or student-centered approach . 3. Social Studies curriculum must be multicultural in approach and materials. The very purpose and meaning of teaching history is currently being debated in our society-from school boards and barber shops to the halls of Congress. Now More Than Ever challenges the reader to enter this debate with a fresh perspective and renewed passion.
