EDC 360 Workshop in Social Studies
3 hours; 3 credits
An investigation of how multicultural imaginative historical narratives can be used as an ongoing structure within early primary grades to foster students’ intellectual development in diverse and inclusive educational settings. To create these instructional materials, students will use the Internet and other media for educational applications. Formal and informal assessment tools as well as classroom management strategies for whole-class and small-group interaction are presented. Particular attention is paid to fostering community relations. The course will offer students opportunities to develop the skills of history storytelling and facilitating discussions that provoke children’s imaginative and problem solving responses. Opportunities will also be given to develop history storytelling units that offer young children multiple media to represent thought. Workshops in creative dramatics and the plastic arts are explored to promote young children’s expressiveness and creativity. This course includes five hours of fieldwork.
