Linking Children's Literature with Social Studies in the Elementary Curriculum
Almerico, Gina M.
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v11 May 2013
The author shares information related to integrating quality literature written for children into the teaching of social studies at the elementary school level. Research within the past decade informs educators of the strong impact of curriculum standards for the social studies as developed by professional organizations. Teachers today are expected to teach the social studies content defined by these standards. The most noted standards are those developed by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS). The NCSS supports using children's literature in teaching and reinforcing social studies content. In this paper, instructional methods for sharing quality children's literature aligned to the NCSS Standards will be explored.
