The second edition of the succinct Middle Grades Social Studies has been revised and updated to meet the ever-changing needs of the social studies curriculum. Once again geared towards preparing students for active and rewarding roles as citizens, the text strengthens its approach by incorporating the NCSS standards and addressing the issue of teacher involvement in a student's personal development. Finally, lesson plan ideas for various classroom situations make this text a valuable resource for pre-service and in-service teachers alike.
