This integrated approach to active learning encourages educators to immerse students in simulations, debates, discussions, and other activities that encourage personal connections while relating historical events to current issues. Students discover that the field of social studies is a reflection of human motives, conflicts, decisions, and actions.

The content is flexible enough to use with any social studies topic. The author presents numerous strategies in each of the following categories:

  • brainstorming
  • art integration
  • discussion 
  • language arts integration
  • deductive reasoning
  • primary sources
