Stahl The National Standards for Social Studies Teachers were developed by a task force of National Council for the Social Studies and approved by the NCSS Board of Directors in April, 1997. The NCSS National Standards for Social Studies Teachers document, which is an official publication of National Council for the Social Studies, describes and explains the council's national standards for social studies teachers that were approved by the NCSS Board of Directors on April 27, 1997. The publication consists of two general sections: (1) an introduction, which contains information about the background and contexts in which the standards were developed, and a description of the audience to which the standards are addressed; and (2) the standards themselves. The standards are of two types (1) Subject Matter Standards, which outline in some detail the social studies content that social studies teachers should know and the skills and dispositions they should possess in order to teach social studies to students appropriately, and (2) Pedagogical Standards, which outline in very general ways the pedagogical knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed for general teacher effectiveness.

NCSS Position Statements
The subject matter standards itemized below are intended to assure that (1) social studies teachers possess the knowledge, capabilities, and dispositions associated with the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of the disciplines that make up the social studies and (2) that they are able to create learning experiences that make these aspects of subject matter meaningful for learners. The subject matter standards are of three types: thematic standards, disciplinary standards, and programmatic standards for initial licensure. Both the thematic and the disciplinary standards are expected to be used in four ways: (1) to assess the knowledge and competence of individuals seeking licensure (or certification) to teach social studies or any of the disciplines within social studies, (2) to assess the quality of teacher education programs that prepare these individuals for initial licensure (or certification), (3) to determine the appropriateness of state standards and procedures that are used to evaluate teacher preparation programs that would be designated nationally approved by NCSS, and (4) to guide those establishing criteria and procedures to be used for advanced certification of social studies teachers, such as the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).

All I ask in return, if you have time, is that you email me a tactic that you have developed so I can show it to my students, and, should you have time to remember, please cite this www page.) Table of Contents Imagine yourself as a literacy educator. Your task is to teach adults how to teach other people how to read. A young man, twentyish, comes to you and asks that you assist him in learning some methods of reading instruction. You ask, "Why do you care if others can read?" "Well, it seems like a good thing, to read you know, and I do need a job." "Fair enough. A job is important. But why should it be this job? Why care if people can read?" "Well, if people can read, they can learn." "But what will they learn?" "To get a job." "So your job will be to teach people to read to get a job?" "Yes, but there is more of course. They will be smarter. They will be able to understand and enjoy more."

    Daylight Daving Time: History, Rationale, Laws and Dates
    Daylight Saving Time begins for most of the United States at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of April. Time reverts to standard time at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday of October. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time. In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1 am Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It starts the last Sunday in March, and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment. The main purpose of Daylight Saving Time (called "Summer Time" many places in the world) is to make better use of daylight. We change our clocks during the summer months to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. Countries have different change dates.

    Nature of the Work
    Working Conditions ... Sources of Additional Information
    Significant Points
    • Public school teachers must have at least a bachelor’s degree, complete an approved teacher education program, and be licensed.
    • Many States offer alternative licensing programs to attract people into teaching, especially for hard-to-fill positions.
    • Excellent job opportunities are expected as a large number of teachers retire over the next 10 years, particularly at the secondary school level; opportunities will vary somewhat by geographic area and subject taught.
    Nature of the Work About this section Back to Top Teachers act as facilitators or coaches, using interactive discussions and “hands-on” approaches to help students learn and apply concepts in subjects such as science, mathematics, or English. They utilize “props” or “manipulatives” to help children understand abstract concepts, solve problems, and develop critical thought processes. For example, they teach the concepts of numbers or of addition and subtraction by playing board games. As the children get older, the teachers use more sophisticated materials, such as science apparatus, cameras, or computers. To encourage collaboration in solving problems, students are increasingly working in groups to discuss and solve problems together. Preparing students for the future workforce is the major stimulus generating the changes in education. To be prepared, students must be able to interact with others, adapt to new technology, and think through problems logically. Teachers provide the tools and the environment for their students to develop these skills.
