MEDIA REVIEWS

"Cooper's insightful tour of her social studies classroom is eye-opening and reflective. I am positive that when teachers read this book, it will change the way they look at teaching social studies. They will be guiding their students in the development of a deep desire to think, challenge, seek answers, and make a difference in the world."-Linda Biondi, MiddleWeb

"Sarah Cooper has narrowed the focus of her extensive understanding of social studies pedagogy to the realm of civics and current events-addressing the challenges and opportunities of social studies teachers in seamlessly weaving the present into the history curriculum. She provides practical examples and gives teachers a glimpse into her classroom, into the minds of her students and a window into her own expertise. It is an important moment in history to be a history teacher, and Cooper provides a map to guide students and teachers through this complex and fraught path, bringing forth the imperatives of action and civic duty through engagement of the mind." - Jody Passanisi, Director of Middle School, Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School, Palo Alto, CA, and Author of History Class Revisited: Tools and Projects to Engage Middle School Students in Social Studies
