Interdisciplinary Activities Using "Census in Schools"
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v22 n4 p13-14 Mar-Apr 2010
Like many other teachers, the author always looks for a way to enliven a lesson--a new twist, a different perspective, a novel resource. The slogan of the NCSS convention held in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2009 was, "Dreams and Deeds: The Civic Mission of Schools," and this article provides "how to" ideas, easy, high-interest opportunities to make that happen in one's classroom. The author presents census resources that will help teachers turn classroom dreams into deeds, inform their students about the census and how it affects their community, and help them teach the curriculum.
