This course encourages the pedagogies of reflective teaching, constructivism, and teaching for social justice and social change. Students will be introduced to current theories and research that examine effective teaching and meaningful learning in the elementary social studies. Urban teacher candidates will review content in various social studies disciplines while preparing to teach national, state, and local district social studies standards. Students will practice and model instructional strategies that encourage the development of critical thinking, problem solving, and performance skills. Students will use formal and informal assessment strategies to evaluate and help foster the continuous intellectual, social and physical development of the learner. Urban elementary field experiences are part of the course requirements.
