EDUC 4294 Primary & Junior Social Studies
This course provides teacher candidates with a rationale and overview of curriculum design particular to social studies. Participants will become familiar with the guideline for Primary and Junior Social Studies produced by the Ontario Ministry of Education and Training and will use this guideline to produce appropriate curriculum units. We will undertake a study of the aims, scope and sequence, and structure of social studies in the early grades.
Critical literacy principles and the concept of active learning will guide examination of existing resources for social studies instruction and the development of teacher made resources and learning strategies to enliven and interest young learners.
