Ancient Philosophy: From 600 BCE to 500 CE Ancient Philosophy: From 600 BCE to 500 CE


The human mind has long hungered to understand deep truths. Though ideas of this nature are often impossible to explain definitively, numerous individuals dedicate their lives to seeking answers that transcend the mechanical and approach the metaphysical. The books in this absorbing series invite readers to pose their most probing questions alongside the philosophers who came before them and learn about the various strains of thought that developed over time in response. Students will also discover the interplay between philosophy and religion as well as the mathematical basis for much philosophical thought.

 If This is Social Studies, Why Isn't it Boring? If This is Social Studies, Why Isn't it Boring?


Wendy Hood writes in the Introduction that they have ...not only rediscovered social studies education in general, they have also found themselves exploring the many disciplines of the social sciences that combine to make social studies... The issues of the disciplines are visible, the content of the disciplines is visible, and the questions central to each discipline are central in these classrooms. While the studies described began in one discipline, they branched out or melted into one or more of the others. Teachers explain their strategies for teaching social studies in a whole-language context. Contemporary subjects (the Gulf War), traditional topics (students as historians), well-known projects (Scottish Storyline), social studies in the community, and multicultural matters are covered.
