Preservice teachers working with elementary school teachers in university practicum settings often report limited time for social studies instruction because of increased accountability for mathematics and reading achievement via No Child Left Behind. Incorporating content literacy tools such as graphic organizers with social studies learning can be an effective means for integrating these content areas. The author shares results of a university project describing preservice teachers use of graphic organizers during content reading instruction in practicum classroom settings.
