The NCERT has been publishing a new generation of social science textbooks since
2005. Teaching Social Science in Schools is a manual that explains the
rationale for the new approach and illustrates how the new textbooks can be used
effectively. It provides answers to many questions such as:

- What problems are teachers likely to face while teaching with the help of
the new textbooks?

- Why not provide straight and direct definitions for children to learn?

- Have such textbooks been used elsewhere in the country?

- What roles are parents expected to play?

Alex M George and Amman Madan come up with jargon-free replies in a friendly,
‘frequently-asked-questions’ format. They take us through the challenges
of textbook preparation and offer guidelines for interactive classroom sessions.

This book is a must-have not only for school and college libraries, but would
also well adorn the bookshelves of teachers, trainee teachers, parents, students,
educationists, designers of school curricula, or any reader interested in the
way young people are taught social science in India.
