Grounded in decades of research, the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) has been successfully implemented at hundreds of schools across the world. In The Schoolwide Enrichment Model in Social Studies: A Hands-On Approach to Developing Investigative Skills in Social Studies, teachers learn to apply the SEM strategies to the social studies curriculum. Through activities designed to motivate, challenge and engage, teachers learn how to help students develop an understanding of the core principles of democracy and pursue individual and small-group investigative projects in their selected areas of interest. The practical skills, strategies, and activities in this book are aligned with the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) and The College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies Standards. By using this book, teachers can create enrichment opportunities to make students aware of their changing cultural and physical environments, knowledge of the past, and ways to promote the common good.
