ECE 535 Science and Social Studies Methods and Differentiated Instruction: Preschool through Grade Four

3 Credits

In the Science Methods component of this course, students explore science theory, practice, and pedagogy relevant to developmentally appropriate practice. Contemporary science education research and practice are examined, as articulated in the Pennsylvania Academic Standards for Science and Technology, Environment and Ecology (STEE) and the National Science Education Standards. The Social Studies Methods component of this course uses the Pennsylvania Academic Standards and the 10 themes identified by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) to provide students with social science concepts that are taught in the early childhood and elementary classroom settings.  Students learn about various methodologies for teaching the knowledge, skills, behaviors and civic values necessary for fulfilling the responsibilities of citizenship in a participatory democracy. Special attention is given to addressing the individual and cultural diversity of all learners. A primary focus of the course is on Science and Social Studies curricula and the use of this curricular content in the development of critical thinking, problem solving and performance skills, active learning, and inquiry.  This course has a required field component.
