Once your selections are located, the planning process continues. You must devise a way to share these stories with young citizens that engages their interest and curiosity. Although you must never trivialize or demean the power of a good story, you may want to generate teaching activities from a trade book or set of trade books that meet your social studies goals. The following resources can help you with all phases of this planning process. The first section presents bibliographies of trade books dealing with social studies issues. The second offers resources to help you find the perfect strategy for sharing the stories with your students.

Ethnomethodology is the study of how social order is produced in and through processes of social interaction. Ethnomethodology is a fundamentally descriptive discipline which does not engage in the explanation or evaluation of the particular social order undertaken as a topic of study. The term's meaning can be broken down into its three constituent parts: ethno — method — ology , for the purpose of explanation. Using an appropriate Southern California example: ethno refers to a particular socio-cultural group for example, a particular, local community of surfers ; method refers to the methods and practices this particular group employs in its everyday activities for example, related to surfing ; and ology refers to the systematic description of these methods and practices. The focus of the investigation used in our example is the social order of surfing, the ethnomethodological interest is in the "how" the methods and practices of the production and maintenance of this social order. In essence ethnomethodology attempts to create classifications of the social actions of individuals within groups through drawing on the experience of the groups directly, without imposing on the setting the opinions of the researcher with regards to social order, as is the case with other forms of sociological investigation.
Operations committees relate their work to Board directives, the long-range plan of NCSS, and the leadership theme of the year set by the Board. They make recommendations to the board and provide advice. The selection committees review nominations and select recipients of NCSS awards and grants. Committee members serve a three-year term and most committee work is accomplished online or by telephone. Members are also asked to make a reasonable effort to attend the award winner session, awards presentation, and assist the committee chair when need arises during the review or at the NCSS Annual Conference.
A bibliography is a list of sources that were referenced to write an academic paper, a journal article , a book, a critique, an essay or any other type of academic writing. A bibliography differs from a works cited page because a bibliography includes any works that were referenced to write the paper, not merely the works that were cited in the paper. Bibliographies differ depending on what style of writing you are using. Each of these different styles has a different format for writing a bibliography.
