Social Studies: Innovative Approaches for Teachers Chapter Review Social Studies is relatively new as a subject in Canadian schools. Creating social studies curricula that is uniquely Canadian, and independent of American curriculum influence is an ongoing task. Social studies is multi-disciplinary in nature, drawing its knowledge and techniques of inquiry from many areas of expertise. There are major strands or key ideas that focus the specific objectives or expectations for any part of our Social Studies curriculum. Teaching social studies involves teaching appropriate values; character education initiatives are one way to do this. Critical thinking is a key skill in social studies and can be applied to the examination of moral dilemmas. Cognitive and social constructivism approaches help students make meaning of new experiences. Social values and norms evolve and our social studies curriculum needs to remain responsive to their evolution. Copyright © 2011 by Pearson Education Canada 1 - 15
Social Studies: Innovative Approaches for Teachers 1 - 16 Copyright © 2011 by Pearson Education Canada Practising professional reflection is a desirable trait in a teacher and helps us focus our professional improvement efforts. The characteristics of transformative instructional strategies that are responsive to cognitive and social constructivism theories will create a dynamic Social Studies learning environment. Backwards design of the curriculum helps us to keep a focused match between what we are intending to teach and how we will ask students to demonstrate that they have learned what was intended. Both teacher modeling and directed activity have valuable roles in our classrooms. Social studies classrooms need to be resource rich. Reflective practice is a professional responsibility that focuses our instructional improvement efforts.
