    This volume focuses on the New Deal Era. This volume will provide pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, social studies methods teachers, and college level social studies content faculty a variety of resources for teaching and learning about the New Deal Era.

    BRIEF DESCRIPTION:   Teaching the New Deal will address the challenge of how to meet the Common Core and NCS standards and the C3 frameworkby filling a significant need for resources and methods to support preservice and in-service teachers.  The book will offer teachers a variety of ways to engage middle and high school students in economic and political arguments about American capitalism and the role of the federal government in defining and sustaining capitalism, as sparked by President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal policies. Among the significant actors in the chapters must be women, Indigenous/Native, African-descended, Latinx, and Asian Pacific Island people.

    Essential to this book is an exploration of definitions, assumptions, and practices of American capitalism.  The elements of capitalism include private property, capital accumulation through the generation of profit by owners of the means of production, wage labor by a vast pool of workers, voluntary exchange, a price system, and competitive markets that are intended to distribute goods and services efficiently.
