Annals of Social Studies Education Research for Teachers https://assertjournal.com/index.php/assert <p>We know that social studies teachers are dedicated to their craft and always looking for ways to improve those practices. Teachers tell us that they would like to make use of research that illustrates powerful social studies teaching and learning, but that they don’t have access to the research, don’t have time to read it, or find it too difficult to digest.</p> <p>Here at <em>ASSERT</em> we want to break down these barriers for you. On our site, you will find easily digestible, relevant, well-written, summaries of the best published social studies research the profession has to offer with practical advice on how to implement these ideas in your classroom.</p> <p>Each article is blind peer-reviewed by two professionals, a scholar with expertise in the field and a practicing social studies teacher. These reviewers help to ensure that the summaries you read are of the highest possible quality, that they accurately represent the research, and that they provide teachers with practical advice they can use to take their teaching to the next level. They are published along-side a Q &amp; A companion article that poses five questions (generated by teachers and teacher educators) about the author’s article.</p> <p>Best of all, we provide you with access to these summaries free of charge. We are a collective of social studies teachers and teacher educators dedicated to the profession and to hard working teachers like yourself. You and your students should have the best new ideas, research, and practices available to you. Now, you have it at your fingertips. <em>The Annals of Social Studies Education Research for Teachers</em> welcomes you to join us in this new and exciting venture.</p> University of Alberta Library en-US Annals of Social Studies Education Research for Teachers 2563-6006 <p>The <a href="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/">Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License</a> applies to all works published by this journal, unless it is otherwise stated on the article.
