  • “Putting it in Technicolor:”The influence of a pre-service teaching
           residency at a historic site, archive, library, or museum on in-service
           pedagogical practices
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 20 February 2020Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Nicholas E. CoddingtonAbstractOver the last 30 years, colleges of education across the nation have examined and deliberated how best to educate pre-service history teachers for the challenges of the modern classroom. Specifically, they sought to create and refine teacher preparation programs that foster within the pre-service history teacher the propensity to use authentic teaching practices once they are licensed and instructing independently in the classroom. Using a situated learning theoretical framework, this research study adds to the literature on this topic by examining how a semester-long pre-service residency at a historic site, archive, library, or museum influences in-service history teacher pedagogy. Utilizing an ex post facto qualitative research methodology with a questionnaire, interviews, and analysis of lesson plans, this study pursued the objective of evaluating the nuances of a residency and how those experiences influence in-service pedagogical dispositions. The findings of the study conclude pre-service history teacher residencies offer valuable and unique learning spaces for the pedagogical development of pre-service history teachers by promoting authentic-based teaching models that participants carry into their in-service teaching.
       
  • A global perspective' Framing analysis of U.S. textbooks’
           discussion of Nigeria
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 February 2020Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Oluseyi Matthew Odebiyi, Cynthia S. SunalAbstractStudents are expected to develop the intellectual capacity needed to accurately portray other world societies. Few research studies in social studies education, however, draw on a systematic textbook analysis to investigate global perspectives on non-Western societies such as those found in African nations. Situated in framing theory, this study employs a qualitative content analysis approach to examine textual and visual curricular representations of non-Western societies framed in the content of four U.S. world history/cultures and geography textbooks by considering specifically how Nigeria, a very large, relatively wealthy and complex African nation, is represented. The results provide insights into curricular perspectives in U.S. classrooms about non-Western societies, particularly regarding national narratives. Deficit perspectives are the dominant frame so students are primed to construct social reality from the partial textual and visual information to which they are exposed in their classrooms. The findings indicate a lack of research by both textbook authors and publishers into the contents of the texts, which has the potential to negatively affect students’ construction of narratives and civic competence. This study contextualizes its results in visual literacy, cross-cultural behaviors, global perspectives, and attributes of global citizenship.
       
  • Fourth graders’ (Re-)Reading, (historical) thinking, and (revised)
           writing about the black freedom movement
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 5 February 2020Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): John H. Bickford, Jeremiah Clabough, Tim TaylorAbstractElementary teachers can integrate social studies into their curriculum through thematic or interdisciplinary units. This study explores fourth-grade students’ responses to a month-long, structured inquiry. For two weeks, fourth-graders engaged in multiple readings of five secondary and fourteen primary sources using closed- and open-ended analysis questions and extemporaneous, text-based writing. For another two weeks, the writing process guided students through concept mapping, skeleton outlining, peer- and teacher-review, and revision. Three researchers examined students’ writings for criticality, complexity, and clarity. Findings yielded positive, statistically significant correlations between secondary source usage and historical significance, secondary source usage and continuity-and-change, and primary source usage and contextualization. Positive, weak correlations appear between primary source usage and sourcing. No relationship appears between corroboration and other variables. Meaning is extrapolated for classroom practice and applied to seminal studies. Limitations include a small sample of largely homogeneous, inexperienced students.

  • “I think the comfort women are us”: National identity and affective
           historical empathy in students’ understanding of “comfort women” in
           South Korea
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 October 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Hana JunAbstractThis study investigates how students' national identity affects their historical understanding by mediating their use of affective historical empathy. The research focuses on the case of “comfort women” (women forced into sexual slavery for Japanese soldiers during WWII) in South Korea—a topic in which a strong nationalist narrative dominates social and educational discourses. I conducted semi-structured, task-based group interviews with 16 high school students in South Korea. In interviews, students' national identity mediated how they utilized four types of affective historical empathy: Students as ethnic Koreans cared more about “our” Korean comfort women over others; cared that Korean comfort women and others suffered from what “we” and “they” did as nations; cared for those women's voices from a humanitarian perspective beyond their ethnic and national boundaries; and cared to make social changes for those women and themselves as future citizens of their democratic nation. These findings help us understand how students' emotional attachment to “our” nation and its members can mediate their historical understanding through affective historical empathy as well as how affective historical empathy can motivate students to move beyond purely nationalistic concerns. This case study also stimulates reflection on historical empathy's implications for students' democratic civic participation.

  • Students׳ use of data visualizations in historical reasoning: A
           think-aloud investigation with elementary, middle, and high school
           students
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies Research, Volume 43, Issue 4Author(s): Tamara L. ShreinerAbstractData literacy – the ability to analyze, interpret, evaluate, and use data and data visualizations – has become increasingly important for understanding and communicating information in the discipline of history. In the United States, curricular standards and standardized assessments already reflect this importance, but educators lack a clear picture of how students use data visualizations when reasoning about the past. How do students use data visualizations when reasoning about a historical question' To what degree does using data visualizations enhance students’ historical reasoning' What challenges do students face when attempting to use data visualizations' This study addresses these questions, investigating how fifth-grade, eighth-grade, and high school students use data visualizations from typical school textbooks. Twenty-seven students were interviewed, surveyed, and asked to think aloud about a historical question while using a textbook entry that included a data visualization. Results from qualitative and quantitative analyses highlight the potential for data visualizations to enhance historical reasoning. However, results also indicate that students are unlikely to read data visualizations on their own, underscoring the importance of providing targeted data literacy instruction.
       
  • Middle school geography teachers׳ professional development centered
           around historical photographs
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies Research, Volume 43, Issue 4Author(s): Cory CallahanAbstractThis paper describes three social studies teachers’ participation in an approximately 50-h, 13-month, Lesson Study-type professional development program called Beyond Words. The program centered around promoting teachers’ understanding of historical domain knowledge through experiences with innovative visual curriculum materials and sustained collaboration. This qualitative investigation answers: To what degree can Beyond Words help in-service geography teachers design and implement powerful instruction centered around historical photographs' Throughout Beyond Words the teachers demonstrated a spirit of open-mindedness and a willingness to experiment with unfamiliar ideas; they planned and implemented a lesson that featured engaging historical photographs, thinking critically about the past, and making claims about a public issue. At the end of the program, however, they demonstrated conventional approaches toward social studies instruction, especially regarding curriculum and assessment. The work shared here suggests that helping teachers craft high-quality questions to anchor student-inquiry and scaffolding teachers’ sensemaking of student-outcome data should be high priorities for professional development providers.
       
  • Critical historical inquiry: The intersection of ideological clarity and
           pedagogical content knowledge
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 September 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Brooke Blevins, Kevin Magill, Cinthia SalinasAbstractThis paper presents the relationship between pedagogical content knowledge and political/ideological clarity as a framework for understanding the nuanced interpretations and applications of critical social studies pedagogy and practice. Using a qualitative case study research design, this study explores the decision-making process of two novice social studies teachers as they decide if and how to utilize critical historical inquiry within their classrooms. Findings indicate that teachers' use of critical historical inquiry is informed by their subject area consciousness and political and ideological clarity which is cultivated through personal, schooling, and communal experiences. However, we also find that a teacher's pedagogy is significantly strengthened when political and ideological clarity are coupled with pedagogical content knowledge to ensure a more developed enactment of critical historical inquiry is reached within the social studies classroom.

  • Preparing elementary pre-service teachers for social studies integration
           in an alternative field placement
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 September 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Sara B. DemoinyAbstractAs social studies receives less instructional time in elementary classrooms, elementary pre-service teachers (PSTs) observe little social studies instruction in their field placements. Social studies integration is one way to counteract the devaluation of social studies in elementary schools. This multiple case study examines the extent to which nine elementary PSTs were able to integrate social studies into lessons during an alternative field placement, an integratedSTEM camp. The findings show variance across and within participants in their ability to integrate social studies in a quality way. Implications for elementary social studies methods course instructors are discussed.
       
  • Critically examining virtual history curriculum
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 September 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Tiffany Rae McBean, Joseph R. FeinbergAbstractWith a notable growth in the number of students accessing online education and virtual schools, social studies educators and researchers should evaluate these educational platforms. This study involves a critical evaluation of U.S. History curriculum of Georgia Virtual School through Critical Race Theory, and contributes to the nascent literature on social studies online instruction. The results from this study illustrate a picture of Georgia Virtual School (GAVS) that coincides with research on race and racism in social studies education. In particular, analysis of the U.S. History course from GAVS shows race and racism are not addressed to the degree that Georgia Standards of Excellence require. In addition, traditionally marginalized groups, such as LatinX, Asian Americans and Native Americans, are given significantly less curricular coverage than African Americans. Racism is also presented as an overarching systemic problem. Overall, the data shows that GAVS U.S. History curriculum inadequately addresses the significance of race and racism in United States history.

  • Examining pre-service teachers’ preparedness and perceptions about
           teaching controversial issues in social studies
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 5 September 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Lydiah Nganga, Amy Roberts, John Kambutu, Joanie JamesAbstractThis study explored pre-service teachers' (N = 37) perceptions about teaching controversial global and local topics. Additionally, it examined participants’ level of preparedness, motivation and perceived hindrances to teaching controversial issues. To do so, the study used a interpretive phenomenological approach (IPA). Data from written reflections and semi-structured interviews showed 80 percent of participants lacked exposure to college work that examined controversial issues prior to taking Social Studies Methods course. However, after taking the course, participants were able to identify controversial topics, but they still displayed limited critical awareness and conceptualization of teaching controversial issues. Other findings pointed to the benefits of teaching controversial topics in a planned and intentional manner.

  • Fear and learning in student teaching: Accountability as gatekeeper in
           social studies
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 May 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Todd S. Hawley, Gretchen M. WhitmanAbstractToday’s pre-service teachers grew up attending schools where high stakes testing and teacher accountability were the norm. Despite a substantial body of research focused on the influence high-stakes testing on the practices of novice social studies teachers, a gap exists regarding the accountability movement's influence on novice social studies teachers. This study focused explicitly on the influence high-stakes testing and the culture of accountability had on two pre-service social studies teachers during their student teaching experience. Our findings highlight the ways the accountability culture of public schools served a narrow gatekeeping function, limiting what participants learned during student teaching. Rethinking gatekeeping during student teaching within the current era of accountability and oversight positions teacher educators to confront the constricting nature of student teaching today. Student teachers must learn to recognize the gatekeeping aspects of the accountability culture and to make sense of the contradictions embedded in the student teaching experience.

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 16 April 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Ryan T. Knowles, Andrea M. Hawkman, Sarah R. NielsenAbstractThis quantitative study of 3557 high school teachers from 44 states assesses the implications of the social studies teacher-coach. The study compares social studies teacher-coaches and non-coaches in terms of teacher demographics and school contexts, disciplines taught, and instructional preferences. Substantial differences between coaches and non-coaches were found across gender, community type, and teaching experiences. Teacher-coaches disproportionately taught general classes such as government, Economics, and Geography, while non-coaches are more likely to teach Advanced Placement courses. Finally, self-report data measuring teacher's instructional preferences indicates that teacher-coaches were more likely to indicate implementation of lectures, textbooks, worksheets, and videos, while non-coaches were more likely to indicate preference for examining photographs, artifacts, or primary materials.
       
  • Developing civic competence through action civics: A longitudinal look at
           the data
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 March 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Karon LeCompte, Brooke Blevins, Tiffani Riggers-PiehlAbstractThis paper describes student outcomes from participating in a week-long out-of-school action civics program designed to increase students’ civic and political competence and engagement. Using analysis from four years of survey data, this paper presents findings related to changes in students’ civic competence as a result of participating in the program, including findings related to both first time and repeat campers. Data revealed that participants experienced gains in half of the civic competence construct variables, with first-time campers experiencing significant gains in five of the civic competence construct variables. Data analysis suggests that iEngage, an action civics summer experience, was effective in increasing elements of students’ civic competence, including their ability to get people to care about a problem, organize and run a meeting, write an opinion letter or contact a media outlet to express their views, and contact an elected official or community leader to address an issue.
       
  • The pre-service practicum experience and inquiry-oriented pedagogy:
           Evidence from student teachers׳ lesson planning
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 12 March 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Michael P. Marino, Margaret S. CroccoAbstractThis paper addresses whether, how, and to what extent social studies student teachers who have been introduced to inquiry-oriented teaching (as manifest in the National Council for the Social Studies C3 Framework) in their secondary social studies methods course incorporate this approach into the planning for their practicum experience. Based on analysis of lesson plans used in the practicum and follow-up interviews with a small subset of student teachers, this paper analyzes the factors that promote or inhibit use of this approach to teaching in their practicum experience. Results indicate the C3-oriented teaching approach, as taught in the methods course, did appear in the student teachers’ lesson plans. A small subset of student teachers used the framework competently while two smaller subsets were less adept in their application. The degree of application was affected by student teachers’ perceptions of their school placements and students’ needs.
       
  • The mint julep consensus: An analysis of late 19th century Southern and
           Northern textbooks and their Impact on the history curriculum
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 March 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Chara Haeussler Bohan, Lauren Yarnell Bradshaw, Wade Hampton MorrisAbstractIn the decades after the Civil War, Southerners wrote and published their own history textbooks for secondary schools. These “mint julep textbooks,” as the Southern all-white editions were called by the 1960s, reinforced a Lost Cause narrative of the war for Southern audiences while competing with Northern versions of events. In this study, we employ both historical narrative and content analysis of six textbooks’ portrayals of John Brown, John Wilkes Booth, and Nathan Bedford Forrest. The textbooks that are compared– three Southern and three Northern – were written from the 1870s through the 1910s. While subtle but important differences emerge between the Northern and Southern depiction of these three figures, an even more important trend developed when analyzing change over time. In this article we conclude that, as time progressed, Southern versions of events increasingly impacted Northern textbooks. By the 1930s, the mint julep version of these three figures became the national consensus, as reflected in the work of historian David Saville Muzzey. This consensus around events like the raid at Harpers Ferry, the assassination of Lincoln, and the massacre at Fort Pillow lasted for much of the 20th century. By the early 20th century, Northerners appeased Southern interests in the writing of history textbooks.
       
  • Predictors of students׳ achievement on NAEP-Economics: A multilevel
           model
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 February 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Tina L. Heafner, Phillip J. VanFossen, Paul G. FitchettAbstractPrevious research has examined the role of formal classroom economics education on student learning. However, few studies have examined the role of both in school and out of school economics education exposure on student learning. Using data from the 2006 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)-Economics 12th grade assessment, we conducted an analysis using multilevel modeling to examine both student- and school-level effects on economics content knowledge. We analyzed the relationship among student-level variables including demographics, economics course structure, and instructional exposure. Unlike prior studies, we accounted for the nesting of students in schools and determined significant building-level effects associated with NAEP-E outcomes. We included district and state accountability policies (e.g., required testing and graduation requirements) as well as contextual variables (e.g., percent minority and percent college bound) at the building level. Findings offered a more nuanced interpretation of earlier NAEP-E studies and extended earlier analyses to include instructional exposure and building-level effects.
       
  • Positioning children׳s literature to confront the persistent avoidance of
           LGBTQ topics among elementary preservice teachers
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 February 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Lisa Brown Buchanan, Christina Tschida, Elizabeth Bellows, Sarah B. ShearAbstractUsing a queer theory and disrupting heteronormativity framework, we applied a model lesson in the elementary methods course to understand preservice teachers’ experiences with LGBTQ individuals and families and their beliefs about utilizing children׳s literature portraying LGBTQ families in the elementary classroom. Participants reported a range of personal experiences with LGBTQ individuals and families and relatively positive responses to the family text set presented but wavered on LGBTQ themed books due to perceived conflict, religious beliefs, and ideas about what is appropriate content for young learners. A discussion of the findings also includes preservice teachers’ intentions for future teaching related to LGBTQ topics. Implications for teacher education and social studies education are explored.
       
  • Role retreatism of social studies teacher-coaches: An unequal balancing
           act
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 February 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Caroline J. ConnerAbstractThe current study explores role retreatism in secondary social studies teachers who coach athletics. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which social studies teacher-coaches retreat towards coaching and reasons for such prioritization. A case study relying primarily on interview and document data was conducted which included three secondary social studies teachers who coach football in the southeastern United States. Results indicate that participants prioritized coaching over teaching to cope with role conflict. The study further highlights the unequal rewards system in American schools, which promotes athletics over academics.

  • Can we meet our mission' Examining the professional development of
           social studies teachers to support students with disabilities and emergent
           bilingual learners
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 5 February 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Ricky Dale Mullins, Thomas Williams, David Hicks, Sara Brooke MullinsAbstractIn this paper, we conduct a secondary analysis of The Institute of Educational Sciences’ (IES) 2011-2012 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) data, a self-reported, nationally representative database to examine: (a) the average caseload of students with disabilities and emergent bilingual learners within and across social studies content areas, as well how social studies teachers’ caseloads compare with other content area disciplines and (b) the extent and perceived utility of professional development opportunities social studies teachers receive to support both students with disabilities and emergent bilingual learners.
       
  • Museums as mentor texts: Preservice teachers analyze informational text
           structures and features present in a historical museum
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 January 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Brian Kissel, Erin Miller, Erik Byker, Amy Good, Paul FitchettAbstractThe purpose of this study was to examine how elementary preservice teachers (n = 35) experienced museums as potential sites for K-5 students to read museums using two lenses: to learn the history of the place in which they live and examine how museum authors craft texts to tell those stories. Along with exploring historical content, preservice teachers studied the museum as an informational text. Through this experience, preservice teachers discovered: 1) the five informational text structures museum authors used to present information and 2) how museum authors conveyed contemporary and social issues using various forms of writing. Additionally, the museum experience provided a context in which the preservice teachers could engage in critical literacy practices.
       
  • Growing democratic citizenship competencies: Fostering social studies
           understandings through inquiry learning in the preschool garden
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 3 January 2019Source: The Journal of Social Studies ResearchAuthor(s): Erin M. Casey, Cynthia F. DiCarlo, Kerry L. SheldonAbstractEssential skills and attitudes necessary for active citizenship need to be cultivated as early as prekindergarten. This exploratory study investigated if three and four-year olds could be actively engaged in social studies practices through inquiry learning in a school garden. Eleven children openly interacted and conducted personally-driven investigations on a daily basis in the school garden located on their playground over nine-months. Three interviews with children, teacher observation notes, and lesson plans were analyzed to discover whether NCSS preK-12 learning themes (2010) for the social studies curriculum could be correlated with garden inquiries. Three prevalent NCSS themes surfaced from data analysis with Civic Ideals and Practices, People, Places, and Environments, and Time, Continuity, and Change being most prevalent. Results imply that working in a school garden through inquiry learning can foster the development of democratic competencies and thus, could be used to design C3 lessons for preschoolers in the garden.
