In the tradition of social studies innovator Peter Martorella, this readable, accessible text offers prospective teachers a comprehensive introduction to teaching social studies to middle and secondary school students.nbsp; With the purpose of social studies being the development of reflective, competent, concerned citizens, the text first examines the origins and evolution of social studies and citizenship education across the United States. Following this, targeted chapters address the art, science, and craft of social studies teaching as a means for engaging learners in knowledge construction. In the final section, the authors look at ways to improve social studies instruction through the incorporation of emerging technologies, and explore the implications of the rich cultural diversity within our nation.nbsp;
