Designing Effective Instruction for Secondary Social Studies (with Richard E. Gross and Michael J. Berson)

In our design-based instructional model, students learn to extend a systematic nine-step model in facilitating the design, development, and implementation of courses, units, and lessons. As the students acquire and develops their planning skills, they come to understand why a program of instruction should contain a diverse range of goals, each serving a specific purpose in regard to subject matter, and each addressing the physical, social and mental needs of students.
