In Strategies for Writing in the Social Studies Classroom, award-winning author and veteran educator Kathleen Kopp offers simple and practical writing strategies that any social studies teacher can integrate into every phase of the learning process. Writing is a valuable learning tool that can quite effectively-and easily-help students learn and understand social studies content. Teaching it, however, can be challenging for content-area teachers now under pressure from the Common Core Standards' refocused attention on reading and writing. With step-by-step directions, rubrics, student examples, templates, technology tips, and ideas for differentiation, Kopp goes beyond journals or reports to show how social studies teachers can use writing to develop critical-thinking skills, improve understanding of social studies concepts, assess students' progress, and hone skills in content-area writing. Her writing strategies support the Common Core Standards and, because the focus is on applying writing skills-and not teaching writing as an end in itself-social studies teachers can easily incorporate these strategies in any unit of study. This comprehensive resource makes it easy to incorporate writing in your social studies class today-and every day!
