Children's Social Consciousness and the Development of Social Responsibility

Children's Social Consciousness & the Development of Social Responsibility cover
by Sheldon Berman
For Middle Level & Elementary • All Grades

This book breaks new ground in our understanding of the development of social consciousness and social responsibility in young people and the educational practices that promote this development.

The author shows that children's awareness of the social and political world emerges far earlier and their moral abilities are more advanced than we thought. He provides educators and researchers with the developmental understandings and instructional strategies necessary to enable students to become active, caring, and responsible members of our social and political community.
