    Social Studies Perspectives (Rural, Indigenous, and International)
    Vol. 5 No. 1 (2023)

    This issue reflects our first open call for papers and brings forth perspectives for social studies educators that help to expand our understanding of the field, including two articles by Allen, Williams, & Hicks and Washington & Seay that provide the reader with a rich portrait of who rural educators are and the challenges they face in teaching social studies today. Poitras Pratt & Danyluk offer a compelling approach to reconciliation that aims to improve relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Finally Picardo provides a glimpse into the curricular lives of Finnish teachers, offering North American teachers an opportunity to think about a different approach from one of the most well-regarded education systems today. Each offers a perspective many social studies teachers don't consider that promise to enrich the journey of the educators who read them.

    Rethinking Economics After the Crash
    Vol. 3 No. 1 (2022)

    In this issue, you will find a series of articles, curated by Guest Editor Erin C. Adams, that challenge us to rethink how we teach economics in light of the crash preceding the Great Recession and the turmoil that has followed. They call into question the purported wisdom of neoclassical economics, which makes up virtually the entire program of economics education in many developed countries. The authors critique the epistemological underpinnings of economic education and ask us to reconceptualize our purposes and approaches to our practices.
