ED 306/306L - Social Studies Methods

An inquiry approach is incorporated for developing concept knowledge and skills in social studies for students in Pre-K through grade 6. Curriculum content, materials, planning, implementing, and assessing learning are included across all of the social sciences. Instruction in history, geography, economics, political science, and other social sciences are considered in light of current recommendations of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and national standards such as those of the National Council for Social Studies (NCSS). Students explore integrating social studies content across all learning experiences to develop thinking skills and awareness of self and community. A semester-long field component is included in this course.
