This valuable reference overviews the past, present, and future of social studies in elementary and secondary schools. The work begins with informative introductory chapters that overview trends and themes common to all disciplines of history and the social sciences. The chapters that follow summarize and assess the development of teaching and research in particular social science disciplines. Each chapter begins with a section of reflections on the history of a discipline, followed by a section on current issues and trends, followed by a final section of projections for the future of the discipline. A final set of chapters discusses broad topics common to all social studies disciplines, such as the place of religion in the social studies curriculum, the role of writing in the social studies classroom, and the professional training of social studies teachers.
