This course will explore conceptual frameworks and content knowledge in social studies at the early / elementary level and the techniques of inquiry integral to the social sciences, i.e., interviews, survey, artifacts, original documents, and research groups. Students will engage in developing in-depth and connected knowledge and understandings structured around powerful ideas in the social sciences. Students will become familiar with national and state standards; competing ideas about the teaching of social studies, particularly at the Pre-K-6 level, will be discussed. Open only to students matriculated in the CTEP Program.
