This updated version of Teaching Social Studies Today 2nd Edition is grounded in the latest research and best practices, and provides teachers with the necessary components to create comprehensive social studies units. This invaluable resource will provide K-12 educators with the tools to develop and implement standards-based social studies curriculum that will help raise the level of social studies education at each specific grade level, and incorporate all dimensions of the C3 framework.

Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.
