Designing Classroom Spaces to Maximize Social Studies Learning
O'Mahony, Carolyn; Siegel, Suzanne
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v21 n2 p20-24 Nov-Dec 2008
Many elementary school teachers with a passion for teaching social studies are finding that the administratively defined time for direct instruction in social studies is becoming increasingly restricted. Fortunately for the teacher who is convinced that social and civic education should be at the center of the elementary school curriculum, where there is a will there is a way. In this article, the authors discuss how teachers can use the physical environment to promote social studies learning. (Contains 13 notes.)
