EDTD 5231 - Best Practices in Social Science Education

In this course students will examine three models of inquiry centered social science instruction: historical investigations, simulation problem solving with decision tree strategies, and hypothesis testing. All three models emphasize the development of conceptual understanding and the integral use of complex thinking skills in learning subject matter. Students will examine adaptations of these models to learners of varied ages and developmental characteristics. A 25-hour field experience in P-12 is required for this course.
