School of Education professors Alan Singer and Eustace Thompson, in collaboration with former associate professor Catherine DiMartino, have published a chapter entitled, “Social Studies, Common Core, and the Threat to Constructivist Education,” in the 2018 book, Constructivist Education in an Age of Accountability. Their chapter (pages 189-210) addresses modern issues faced by educators today.

Publisher Palgrave MacMillan states, “Authors in this book assert the central importance of a range of constructivist approaches to teaching, learning, and thinking, inviting careful reflection on the goals and values of education.”
