EDUC 305 - Teaching Social Studies through the MA Curriculum Frameworks

This course introduces prospective teachers to social studies education in elementary and early childhood classes. Students investigate the rationale and purposes for social studies, create personal philosophies related to the teaching of social studies, become familiar with the MA History and Social Studies Frameworks, demonstrate their understandings of various teaching methods and strategies, and incorporate “best practice” into their teaching of the content found in the MA Curriculum Frameworks. This course facilitates disciplined reflective inquiry into the education process through the interaction of theory and practice.
