In today's climate of accountability and high-stakes testing, many U.S. schools are choosing to focus on the three Rs to the exclusion of other subjects, including social studies. Yet it is more crucial than ever for schools to foster the qualities that will enable students to actively participate in a democratic and global society. The Essentials of Social Studies, Grades K-8 takes a look at how innovative educators are helping students to hone these skills. Readers of this book will learn more about *The challenges that elementary and middle school teachers face in keeping social studies in the curriculum. * How to align social studies lessons with curriculum standards. * Strategies to infuse social studies instruction with passion and purpose. * Ways to promote students' deep understanding of social studies content. * Why lessons and assessments should give students opportunities to solve problems, work on projects, and engage in simulations. * How social studies can prepare students for a lifetime of active civic involvement. * Professional development that will help teachers bring the social studies curriculum to life in the classroom. The future of the United States in no small part depends on how well social studies teachers prepare students to assume their responsibilities as citizens. The Essentials of Social Studies, Grades K-8 will help teachers rise to this considerable challenge.

Where is U.S. secondary-level science education heading today? That's the question that The Essentials of Science, Grades 7-12 sets out to answer. Over the last century, U.S. science classes have consistently relied on lectures, textbooks, rote memorization, and lab demonstrations. But with the onset of NCLB-mandated science testing and increased concern over the United States' diminishing global stature in science and technology, public pressure is mounting to educate students for a deeper conceptual understanding of science. Through lively examples of classroom practice, interviews with award-winning science teachers and science education experts, and a wide-ranging look at research, readers will learn * How to make use of research within the cognitive sciences to foster critical thinking and deeper understanding. * How to use backward design to bring greater coherence to the curriculum. * Innovative, engaging ideas for implementing scientific inquiry in the classroom. * Holistic strategies to address the complex problems of the achievement gap, equity, and resources in the science classroom. * Strategies for dealing with both day-to-day and NCLB assessments. * How professional learning communities and mentoring can help teachers reexamine and improve their practice. Today's secondary science teachers are faced with an often-overwhelming array of challenges. The Essentials of Science, Grades 7-12 can help educators negotiate these challenges while making their careers more productive and rewarding.

Political intrigue. Environmental issues. Ethical dilemmas. Critical thinking. Problem solving. Social studies content is directly connected to real life and is filled with built-in hooks to transform tuned-out students into engaged and enthusiastic learners. Experiencing schoolwide elections, researching a cause, and participating in mock court cases are just a few ways to build the joyful self-efficacy and knowledge that students need for college, careers, and civic-minded adulthood. Springing from the insights and research in Engaging Minds in the Classroom: The Surprising Power of Joy, Erekson explains how to integrate the joyful learning approach with social studies standards, including the Common Core, the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies, and the College, Career, and Civic Life framework. In addition to discussing how to create a student-centered classroom and develop activities that generate authentic products and meaningful outcomes, Erekson provides specific strategies that will enhance your own joy of teaching and learning. This volume completes the set of Engaging Minds, and is a welcome addition to every teacher's reference collection. James A. Erekson is a former elementary teacher and has collaborated with K-12 teachers on reading, writing, and oral language. He has successfully used social studies content to help students develop into stronger readers and writers and is an associate professor of reading at University of Northern Colorado.
