4th Edition

Welcome to the Companion Website for Social Studies for the Twenty-First Century: Methods and Materials for Teaching in Middle and Secondary Schools, Fourth Edition, by Jack Zevin

Now in its fourth edition, this popular text weaves theory, curriculum, methods, and assessment into a comprehensive model for setting objectives; planning lessons, units, and courses; choosing classroom strategies; and constructing tests for some of the field’s most popular and enduring programs. The reflective and integrative framework emphasizes building imagination, insight, and critical thinking into everyday classrooms; encourages problem-solving attitudes and behavior; and provokes analysis, reflection, and debate. The text includes separate chapters on teaching each of the major areas of the social studies curriculum.

Enhancing and extending the text, the Companion Website features:

  • A variety of activities and enrichments
  • An essay on school reform
  • Links and references for further reading
