Roland Case and Penny Clark. (2008). The Anthology of Social Studies: Issues and Strategies for Elementary Teachers. The Anthology of Social Studies: Issues and Strategies for Secondary Teachers. Vancouver, BC: University of British Columbia, Pacific Educational Press. ISBN: 978-1-895766-80-6 (Elementary); 978-1-895766-47-9 (Secondary) The two Anthologies of Social Studies: Issues and Strategies, for Elementary and Secondary Teachers by Case and Clark (2008) are resources on methods and strategies for teaching Social Studies. The books are divided into three parts. Part one focuses on the foundations that you need to teach Social Studies, Part two focuses on the ends and means with Social Studies teaching, and Part 3 focuses on how to implement and assess these strategies in the classroom. Beginning with a small section on the foundations of Social Studies teaching, it is easy to see how influential one can be as a Social Studies instructor. The Anthologies discuss finding the purpose through the Social Studies curriculum, which leads to direct ways to integrate methods and strategies into the classroom to meet all the learning styles of the students as well as all the outcomes of the curriculum. The books give teachers ideas to enhance their teaching and discuss the importance of teaching to diverse cultural settings, incorporating different cultural lessons into plans, and promoting critical thinking and inquiry on important topics like biases, stereotypes, and racism. Both books also provide teachers with an ample amount of lessons and activities to implement in their classrooms. Many of these activities, like interrogating paintings, creating human graphs, investigating equal distributions, and creating a personal coat of arms are great activities to engage students and focus on real world phenomena.
