Volume 5, Issue 1 2016

Humanities and Social Studies education are undergoing significant changes in terms of classroom practice: the firm centrality of inquiry methods, authentic fieldwork experiences, the greater use of discussion, the focus on controversial issues, greater attention to students' ideas, and a conceptual focus for teaching and learning have gained greater traction in classrooms. The articles in this issue of HSSE Online address and support these changes.

An Inspiring Quote

"[Open-mindedness] includes an active desire to listen to more sides than one; to give heed to facts from whatever source they come; to give full attention to alternative possibilities; to recognize the possibility of error even in the beliefs that are dearest to us."

~ John Dewey, How We Think
