Abstract

Social Justice Instruction and Teaching Practices in the Elementary Setting covers the historical perspective of social justice in schools, in general, followed by in elementary schools, and classrooms. It provides specific teaching practices and strategies, as well as traditional and multimedia resources, which can be utilized immediately in classrooms embedded in all subject content through compassion, tolerance, and empathy; this chapter primarily focuses on these three skills with specifics offered the social studies curriculum. An important distinction is drawn between young children learning social justice from social injustice. While grounded in theory, it is primarily a practitioner paper with application which can be of benefit in elementary classrooms immediately.
