Social Studies The purpose of social studies is to develop social understanding and civic efficacy (the readiness and willingness to assume citizenship responsibilities and to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a democratic society.) The social studies curriculum builds four capacities in young people: disciplinary knowledge, thinking skills, commitment to democratic values, and citizen participation.

Integrating Language and Culture in the Social Studies
The National Center for Research on Cultural Diversity and Second Language Learning . (This Center was one of 21 research centers funded by the Office of Educational Research and Improvement of the U.S. Department of Education.)
This five-year research project investigated ways in which classroom teachers could promote students' academic language competence and social studies knowledge in their second language, develop and implement social studies lessons that are sensitive to the cultural and educational backgrounds of language minority students, and help these students adapt to the school-based culture. From 1991-1995, we had examined American history and world studies in middle school classrooms in multiple sites across the nation to identify which academic language and culture demands of this content area pose difficulties for these students and which strategies lead to student success. The classroom-based research was accomplished through observations, interviews, and the development of exemplary lesson plans and curricula that integrate language learning with content objectives. One component of this project, focused on the academic discourse in social studies classes, by analyzing samples of the language competence students need to succeed in the classes from textbooks, assignments, classroom interaction, and teacher talk. Another part of the research investigated ways to make language minority students familiar with common activities that occur in social studies classes, such as role playing, research reporting, and cooperative learning. Overall, the project identified promising practices that effective teachers use to help language minority students participate actively in class, develop English proficiency, and learn about American and world cultures while sharing information about their own.

Resources for Integrating Language and Content Instruction in Middle School Social Studies Classrooms
The National Center for Research on Cultural Diversity and Second Language Learning and the Center for Applied Linguistics produced three publications for middle school social studies teachers. The two thematic units, Protest and the American Revolution and Conflicts in World Cultures , are designed to accommodate English language learners (ELLs) in sheltered social studies or mainstream classes where native English speakers and ELLs study together. In each lesson students relate new information to prior knowledge, practice and apply new knowledge, and review what they have studied. They develop academic language skills through social studies vocabulary, reading, and writing tasks. All lessons emphasize student participatory activities and the cooperative learning approach. Both units come with lesson plans, extension activities, project-based assessment, and teacher resources, as well as language, content, and thinking skill objectives.
Protest and the American Revolution
Organized around the theme of protest, 15 individual lessons focus on events and issues that led to the American Revolution, types and symbols of protest (such as songs and political cartoons), and the roles that several ethnic, racial, and gender groups played during the 1760s and 1770s. Student readings, poems, songs, political cartoons, worksheets, and graphic organizers are included, as are instructions and materials for sentence strip activities, role plays, craftwork, jigsaws, and background information for the teacher.

RATIONAL AND BACKGROUND The purpose of this lesson is for students to get acquainted with other towns and countries around the world by using the local newspaper.

The students will be able to look through the local paper and find articles that they feel show a country that they never heard of before or know a lot about. III. LESSON OBJECTIVES

Using Stories about Heroes
To Teach Values
ERIC Identifier:

Sanchez, Tony R.
Source: ERIC Clearinghouse for Social Studies/Social Science Education Bloomington IN.
There has been a renewal of concern during the 1990s about teaching and learning valuesstandards that everyone should have about what is good or bad. And leading educators have recommended stories about heroes as a main means of teaching and learning values.
Teaching methods that stress only cognitive skills in the analysis and clarification of choices about values have fallen from favor. The current trend is against teaching neutrally about values. Rather, the trend is for teaching values in concert with methods of analysis and judgment that yield answers about right and wrong, better and worse concerning personal behavior and the common good (Leming 1996).
Prominent educators recommend that certain widely held values or virtues should be at the core of the school curriculum for the purpose of systematically developing the character of students. They stress the integration of cognitive development and character development through "perspective-taking, moral reasoning, thoughtful decision-making, and moral self-knowledge" (Lickona 1993, 9). And they also urge the use of personal modelsheroesin history, fiction, and current events to exemplify and encourage emulation of particular virtues or desirable traits of character, such as honesty, civility, courage, perseverance, loyalty, self-restraint, compassion, tolerance, fairness, respect for the worth and dignity of the individual, responsibility for the common good, and so forth (Leming 1996; Lickona 1991).
