Describe, in 200 to 300 words, the different approaches you can use for teaching controversial versus noncontroversial subjects. Identify the subjects and then provide a specific example of each type of instruction.
2.) Consider that one responsibility of the social studies teacher is to help students become
better-informed, more responsible citizens.
• Suggest, in 200 to 300 words, instructional strategies for encouraging community
involvement and global awareness for social studies students.
As you've stated the question, it's impossible to answer because you haven't included the age level of the students, nor the subject matter. Are you teaching about the controversy about the Palestinians vs. the Israelis? Evolution vs. creationism? Obviously the lesson would be different for 8-year-olds, 13-year-olds, 17-year-olds, and 21-year-olds.
Again, the age of the student makes the big difference for instructional strategies.
When I taught middle school, an annual event was to take a half a day for all students to rake the leaves in lawns of senior citizens. This encouraged community involvement. I also found pen pals around the world for my students. Current events gleaned from the internet and newspapers also increases global awareness.

1.) Many historical and current events are controversial, including multicultural, gender, and
moral issues. Although teachers do not have to shy away from teaching controversial subject
matter in the social studies classroom, they should approach the teaching of these subjects
differently than they do noncontroversial subjects.
