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.
