Visible learning for social studies, grades K-12, designing student learning for conceptual understanding, John Hattie [and three others]

"The social studies disciplines encourage learners to explore different facets of society, history, geography, and more--in order to understand make sense of the world around us. It is often through exploring the past that we can more deeply understand the present and make decisions regarding our future. In this new book in the Visible Learning Practice series, John Hattie, Julie Stern, Doug Fisher, and Nancy Frey provide not only the what - the most effective teaching strategies for teaching social studies - but also the when and the how. The authors show how to move students from surface level, factual knowledge to deep understanding of social studies concepts, and finally to transferring those understandings to new and novel situations"--, Provided by publisher
