Wojcik, Teresa G.; Heitzmann, Ray; Kilbride, Candice; Hartwell, Daniel
Social Studies, v104 n6 p241-249 2013
Social studies methods textbooks constitute a rich source of data for trends in teaching and learning. This study examined twenty secondary social studies methods texts for the instructional approaches they recommend. The researchers concluded that methods texts published over the past fifty years consistently call for pedagogical variety and offer a surprising multitude of instructional strategies. Revisiting the rich diversity of instructional strategies in methods textbooks provides classroom teachers an opportunity to reflect on their practice and continue to energize their teaching.
