The course is an introduction to the theory and practice of teaching social studies in the early grades as a function of “placing social studies in the center” of student content learning. Topics include educational research and practice related to social studies instruction in the early grades; theories about the nature of the learner, the teacher, and the classroom environment as they relate to the teaching of social studies; curriculum content (including Georgia history); planning and implementation of instruction; selection and use of instructional materials; and assessment. Use of both Common Core and Georgia Performance Standards will focus student learning upon the development of an integrative unit plan that is multidisciplinary in nature and uses Lynn Erickson’s Concept-based Instruction as a scaffold. Prerequisite(s): ECEP admissions. Taken in Senior Fall Block. 3 hour(s).
