This course prepares prospective secondary school teachers for the challenges and responsibilities associated with teaching middle and high school social studies. The course will provide students with (1) the opportunity to consider their philosophy of education as it applies to the goals of social studies, (2) a knowledge of the major social studies disciplines and standards, (3) an appreciation for the different learning needs of students, and (4) a variety of methods and teaching strategies to teach effectively in a performance-based learning environment. This course aligns with the NCSS (National Council of Social Studies) standards and elements. As part of this course, students participate in field experiences outside of regularly scheduled class times, which enable them to relate the course content to teaching. All students must have required clearances before the semester begins. Please contact the Office of Field Experience and Certification for more information.
