This text takes a clear stance: Social studies is about citizenship education that is informed, deliberative, and activist—citizenship is not only a noun, something one studies, but a verb, something one does. The holistic, multicultural approach of this text reflects this clear curricular and pedagogical purpose. Straightforward, engaging, and highly interactive, the book encourages students (and their teachers) to become informed, think it through, and take action. This Companion Website provides information and teacher resources to extend and enhance the content of the text.
