Product Overview

"I didn't realize that there were so many psychology activities and ideas that I've not used before! These ideas are fresh and useful. The introduction even reminds the reader of the possible need to differentiate the activities for students with IEPs. A splendid work!" ---HUGH CANTERBURY, College Board workshop consultant for AP psychology, Atlanta, Georgia

"This is perfect for my tenth-grade class. This book has included every tool a teacher needs in order to teach a successful lesson. These activities and projects encompass all learning styles and all ability levels. And the handouts and rubrics are fantastic! This is the way to motivate students and definitely the best way to teach." ---MELBA SANDS, special education/integrated coteacher, Riverside High School, Yonkers, New York

Both the novice and veteran teacher---on a traditional schedule of forty-five or fifty-five minutes per class period or a block schedule---have little time to spend designing innovative activities and projects. Yet these make such an important difference in the classroom. Creative assignments can enhance lessons, spark student interest, and serve as assessments of genuine learning that tests do not always measure

Based on the highest levels of Bloom's taxonomy, The Social Studies Helper easily integrates technology into every core high school social studies course as well as two electives. Creative assignments are designed to appeal to visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles as the students are immersed in research, role-playing, art, and other activities. This book also offers tips for differentiation, as needed, with a particular emphasis on modifications for special education students who have processing difficulties

This is the resource book that teachers will turn to again and again throughout the school year. The Social Studies Helper is all the help needed, with innovative activities and projects, along with corresponding rubrics and handouts that are ready for use
