Over at Open Wide, Look Inside my students have begun reviewing books that connect to the teaching of social studies. Each of their posts includes a brief summary of a book, curriculum connections, links for some supporting resources, and general information about the book.
This week the focus is economics. Do stop by and check out these first reviews for social studies. There are lots of good ideas for classroom use you won't want to miss. Some of the books highlighted are shown below.
Those were really cool. If teachers really have these available in their classrooms, there's a whole world that opens up!ReplyDelete
I was glad to see some with pictures of children from the dominant culture; often it seems that illustrators only use children from ethnic minorities, as if they alone need to figure out economics.
