ECE 312 Social Studies Methods

3 Credits

This course prepares students to become effective early elementary social studies educators who are capable of teaching the content knowledge, intellectual skills, and civic values that are necessary for fulfilling the responsibilities of citizenship in a participatory democracy. Special attention is given to effective teaching strategies and to addressing the individual and cultural diversity of all learners. Consequently, students examine the social studies curriculum as it specifically relates to learning and development, differences in learning styles, critical thinking, problem-solving and performance skills, active learning and motivation, as well as modes of inquiry. Collaboration and supportive classroom interaction, instructional planning, assessment, reflection and professional growth, and professional leadership (based upon pedagogical standards that have been identified by the National Council for the Social Studies) are also studied.

Prerequisite(s): ECE 101  / EDU 101  

NOTE:  There is a required field component for this course.  All students are required to have valid clearances to participate in field experience.  Students may not take ECE 312 Social Studies Methods unless they have been officially accepted to the Early Elementary (PK-4) and Special Education (PK-8) major.
