A core text or supplement for middle and secondary social studies methods courses. This innovative text presents authentic, contextually based investigations - that combine ready-to-implement middle and high school lessons with complementary guidelines to demonstrate how the principles of Contextual Teaching and Learning (CTL) can be used to meet NCSS social studies curriculum standards. Intended to develop the attributes necessary for informed citizenship, each investigation provides a sequence of lessons using the teaching/learning styles that research has shown to be most effective with these age groups. Each investigation requires students to face problematic issues, research and analyze data, construct meaning and understanding, evaluate competing points of view, and, finally, reach and defend conclusions. The combination of CTL principles and NCSS standards creates a text that shows teachers-in-training examples of quality social studies instruction while simultaneously illustrating essential social studies methods.
