This competency based workbook in social studies education provides information on developing teaching strategies and instructional materials. Designed for undergraduate students in social studies, student teachers, and methods instructors, it serves as a source of assignments for students, a guide in testing student competencies in social studies education, and a guide for self-paced instruction. Specific instructional strategies include planning sheets, schematic designs for lesson plans, student contract forms, exercises in questioning techniques, and guidelines for curriculum analysis. The author specifies ten teacher competencies, which are presented as chapters and subdivided into activities, skills, and issues. Chapters one through ten identify eight areas of professional concern; present guidelines for planning instruction, organizing the classroom, and writing behavioral objectives; identify seven basic student skills; explain how debates, panels, socio-dramas and other group activities are conducted; discuss directing student research; relate social studies to citizenship education; identify and discuss eight major social studies disciplines; provide information on curriculum skills and evaluation; and discuss values lessons and inquiry skills.
