NEW to the fourth edition of Content Area Learning:
Reclaiming Social Studies for the Elementary Classroom is a new text that defines the core philosophy of viewing social studies from the cultural anthropological perspective. This perspective allows children to bring their own prior knowledge and experiences from their home culture to the social studies curriculum. This curriculum is a logical place to allow students the freedom to demonstrate learning through the arts. It is also a place where people show their cultural identities in celebration of traditions, ideals, rituals, and creative products.
Clinical Exercise Physiology Laboratory Manual is designed to be a practical teaching guide for training students and professionals in the skills to be applied to exercise testing and prescription for health and physical fitness. This text emphasizes the value in learning the techniques in exercise physiology as opposed to just designing experiments in which techniques can be applied. This teaching methodology allows the student or professional to be better prepared to apply techniques to real-life situations.
