Using Multicultural Literature to Teach K-4 Social Studies: A Thematic Unit Approach will help elementary teachers creatively integrate multicultural literature with K-4 social studies instruction. Using the NCSS themes and grade level relevancy, the authors have included an annotated bibliography of over 350 titles organized by cultural group. Study units include goals, objectives for social studies and literacy, introductory activities, sequenced lessons, and assessment activities. Stereotypes to avoid in children's literature are also discussed. A reader-friendly voice and straightforward organization make this a useful tool for any K-4 teacher.
