ED 306 - 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 will be included across all of the social sciences. Instruction in history, geography, economics, political science, and other social sciences will be 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 will explore integrating social studies content across all learning experiences to develop thinking skills and awareness of self and community. A field component of 20-25 hours is included in this course.
