ED 308B Social Studies Literacies (6 to 10 years)

This course provides an introduction to key concepts in social studies education and literacies.  Pre-service teachers will learn to make appropriate decisions about students and instructional processes in teaching literacies and social studies.  Perceptions and perspectives as it relates to social studies instruction in the following areas are explored: curriculum standards, unit development, assessment design and construction, interdisciplinary/integrated curriculum planning, specific group strategies, individualizing techniques, instructional technology, and professional development.  The course will focus on the intersection of the student voice and critical inquiry, we will consider what it means to create a learning environment in which early primary elementary students can meaningfully use literacy practices to connect with the world in which they live from social, cultural, historical, and economic perspectives.
