This course is designed to provide both the theoretical and practical background necessary for planning, implementing, and assessing a social studies program in grades 4-8. The intent is to provide a foundation for long-term growth. Becoming a social studies teacher requires broad knowledge, reflection on educational theory and purposes, an understanding of schools and institutions, and an ability to transform knowledge into meaningful learning experiences. The course will focus on how to present social studies concepts, with an emphasis on how to address the Pennsylvania academic standards for geography, history, economics, and civics & government and the national council for the social studies themes.
