The content-free social studies classroom: James Kendra at TEDxMuskegon
James Kendra, a teacher since 1987 and has been teaching Social Studies at Kenowa Hills Middle School for the past 19 years. He explains that social studies is the most important class students take in school - but not when the emphasis is on facts and dates. He believes in creating a classroom where teachers help students make connections between the present and the past to help them plan for their futures.(Nov 14, 2013, 12:24)
Library Special Collections for Teachers
The CSUS Library maintains three Special Collections that are of interest to Teachers. They are the K-12 Curriculum Collections, the Learning Resouces Display Center and the Juvenile Literature Collection. These collections are located on 2 South. Locate materials in these collections by doing an advanced search in Onesearch, the Library's online catalog. Search by author, title, keyword; then limit your results to specific locations (Juvenile, Curric Guides, Curric Texts, etc) using the options to the left of the search results.
The K-12 Curriculum Collections include textbooks, curriculum guides, and nonprint media for use by students in the CSUS credential programs and practicing teachers.
The Learning Resources Disply Center: The University Library at California State University Sacramento is one of 23 Learning Resource Display Centers (LRDCs) in California. As such, the Library receives and displays K-8 textbooks and supplementary instructional materials that are currently adopted by the California State Board of Education for grades K-8.

The Juvenile Reference Collection is located in an alcove adjacent to the circulating juvenile books. A complete collection of all Newbery and Caldecott Award-winning books can be found next to the Juvenile Reference Collection.
