Volume 2: Issues and Strategies for Secondary Teachers
The two volumes in The Anthology of Social Studies bring together the work of education scholars and the experience of teachers – the best of theory and practice – in two comprehensive collections of ideas and activities for elementary and secondary social studies. The chapters present a diversity of perspectives that provide context, insight, and direction for social studies teaching and learning.
Developed from the acclaimed Canadian Anthology of Social Studies, The Anthology has been completely revised, with updates to the best from the original book and new chapters that address timely issues. The Anthology of Social Studies: Issues and Strategies for Elementary Teachers covers elementary social studies while The Anthology of Social Studies Volume 2: Issues and Strategies for Secondary Teachers deals with secondary history, geography, and social studies. These are essential resources for pre-service and practising teachers and curriculum developers.
