Chapin (education, Notre Dame de Namur U.) and Messick (education, San Jose State U.) emphasize citizenship education and ways to encourage students to become contributing civic members in this introductory text for teaching social studies. This revision also recognizes the new dependence of teachers on state standards and addresses ways to implement these standards into social studies teaching. Other chapters describe how to teach map and globe skills, how to instruct about diversity, and how to evaluate students' progress in social studies.
