Dague, Christopher T. – Social Education, 2020
With concerns over student motivation, it helps to look inward at how teachers' instructional methods and professional practices impact students. Keeping this context in mind, teachers should also recognize that they are teaching and learning in a new era--one where "read-the-chapter-and-answer-the-questionsin-the-back" pedagogies are no…

Swan, Kathy; Crowley, Ryan; Swan, Gerry – Social Education, 2020
Students are taught about the foundations of inquiry--questions, tasks, and sources--and how to build inquiry-based curriculum and instructional strategies for social studies.

Krutka, Daniel G. – Social Education, 2020
In the United States, people have long had a tendency to see the immediate, personal benefits of new technologies as contributing to human progress well before understanding their long-term social consequences. Facebook offers an instructive (and destructive) example. Facebook has failed to build infrastructural safeguards or accept the ethical…

Muetterties, Carly; Swan, Kathy – Social Education, 2019

Olbrys, Stefanie – Social Education, 2019
When the author encountered the C3 Framework, she saw an opportunity to develop a different approach that she hoped would encourage all her students to reach their highest potential. The approach she created--The Deliberative Classroom--has pushed her as much as it has pushed her students. The benefits have been powerful: better academic…

Berson, Ilene R.; Berson, Michael J. – Social Education, 2019
Digital technologies have expanded access to a wealth of resources stored in archives. But authenticating, describing, and indexing these resources requires painstaking work. Most cultural institutions (e.g., museums and libraries) lack the financial resources and workforce to optimize searchability and readability of digitized records, which…

Krizan, Patricia – Social Education, 2019
Social studies teachers often have a love-hate relationship with inquiry. The possibilities of a dynamic and engaging approach to learning labor against time constraints imposed by a content-heavy curriculum. In that scenario, how can professional development (PD) on inquiry inform educators and encourage skeptical teachers to implement this…

Fraker, Jennifer; Muetterties, Carly; Swan, Gerry; Swan, Kathy – Social Education, 2019
In this article, the authors tackle the tension between a fact-based civics test and inquiry-based teaching and learning. The authors begin with a short history on the civics test and the new standards in Kentucky before turning their attention to one approach to the civics test using an Inquiry Design Model (IDM) inquiry--"Does the civics…

Crowley, Ryan M.; King, LaGarrett J. – Social Education, 2018
Critical theory is one of the predominant schools of thought in the social sciences. Like all theory, it is a framework used for explaining--and examining--something about the world. Critical theory pays special attention to the social world, focusing on the hierarchical nature of social relations and examining how these unequal power…

Swan, Kathy; Lee, John; Grant, S.G. – Social Education, 2018
The number one question educators ask about inquiry is how many time a year should it be done. One of the inescapable challenges to inquiry is its lack of efficiency in "covering" content. Inquiry necessarily takes longer than direct instruction and this can be problematic for teachers struggling to find time to cover the breadth of…

Seitz, R. Zachary; Krutka, Daniel G.; Chandler, Prentice T. – Social Education, 2018
The 2016 presidential election was the first since the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act in which full voting protections were not in place for historically marginalized voters. This shift was largely due to a 5-4 decision in "Shelby v. Holder" (2013) in which the Supreme Court ruled that states with a history of voter discrimination…

Journell, Wayne; Friedman, Adam M.; Thacker, Emma S.; Fitchett, Paul G. – Social Education, 2018
The notion of teaching social studies through inquiry is far from a new development. With the publication of the "College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework: Guidance for Enhancing the Rigor of K-12 Civics, Economics, Geography, and History," however, there is arguably a greater emphasis on inquiry in K-12 social studies education…

Miller, Andrew – Social Education, 2018
Project-based learning (PBL) is a powerful way to make learning meaningful to students and to promote student questions and ownership of the inquiry process. It is a useful way to design and deliver curriculum that is similar in many ways to the Inquiry Design Model (IDM). Although PBL and IDM both value inquiry and student questioning, PBL…
