Nix, Jearl; Bohan, Chara Haeussler – Social Education, 2013

In this article, the author presents a truer picture than economic historians have previously had of the economies of Tokugawa Japan, and Britain during the Industrial Revolution.

Bron, Jeroen; van Vliet, Eddie – Social Education, 2013
There is much that can be learned from a curriculum developed in The Netherlands, a country famous for having been "claimed from the sea."

van 't Hooft, Mark – Social Education, 2013
One of the challenges that social studies educators face daily is how to make student learning relevant.

Niederjohn, M. Scott; Schug, Mark C.; Wood, William C. – Social Education, 2013
This article represents the third in a "ghost story" series by the same authors.

Mr.…

Blanchette, Sue – Social Education, 2012

Over the more than 30 years she spent in the classroom, the author has had a front row seat during this evolution. It has been a roller coaster ride at times, but she believes our schools will emerge stronger for it. Who we teach,…

Weinland, Thomas P. – Social Education, 2012
Planning a world history course presents a nearly impossible task. One cannot complete a world history course, or even a European history course, without casting a huge amount of historical information onto the curriculum planning scrapheap. An emphasis on the twentieth century means leaving out significant information from earlier times. "But how…

Teaching world history presents any number of challenges.
