Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
E. Wayne Ross has assembled an impressive collection of scholars, scholar-activists, and teacher educators to rethink the purposes, problems, and possibilities of the social studies curriculum. This reevaluation is especially needed in light of escalating sociopolitical trends that are affecting teaching and learning in K-12 classrooms-trends such as curriculum standardization, standardized testing, rampaging racism and classicism, as well as recurring sexism and other forms of oppression. As a social educator I am committed to preparing social studies teachers who think of themselves as competent curriculum developers and caring instructors in pursuit of an excellent and equitable education for all of their students. The revised edition of The Social Studies Curriculum serves to reaffirm this commitment for me.— Ceola Ross Baber, Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro
