Overview

The third edition of The Social Studies Curriculum thoroughly updates the definitive overview of the primary issues teachers face when creating learning experiences for students in social studies. By connecting the diverse elements of the social studies curriculum-history education, civic, global, and social issues-the book offers a unique and critical perspective that separates it from other texts in the field. This edition includes new work on race, gender, sexuality, critical multiculturalism, visual culture, moral deliberation, digital technologies, teaching democracy, and the future of social studies education. In an era marked by efforts to standardize curriculum and teaching, this book challenges the status quo by arguing that social studies curriculum and teaching should be about uncovering elements that are taken for granted in our everyday experiences, and making them the target of inquiry.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents contemporary perspectives on some of the most enduring problems facing social studies educators. The first few essays focus on the purposes identified for social studies education in North America, providing background on disciplinary struggles to control the social studies, as well as ways in which state departments of education, textbook publishers, and other have influenced the curriculum. The next four essays examine social issues in the curriculum, with an emphasis on issues of diversity. Finally, six essays address the social studies curriculum in practice.
