EDU 625 - Methods of Teaching Secondary Social Science


(3)

This methodology course is designed to prepare prospective secondary-level (Grades 7- 12) candidates for successful teaching of both the social and behavioral sciences. Topics include the following: instructional planning, evaluation and questioning techniques, research methods, and professional organizations. Instruction is aligned to the state-adopted Social Science Common Core Standards (7-12) and the Next Generation English Language Development Standards. This course includes intentional practice of classroom management, active and equitable participation for culturally, ethnically, linguistically and academically diverse learners, lesson planning, and formative assessment to differentiate instruction for all learners. Modifications for diverse learners and learners with exceptionalities are researched. (Equivalent to EDU435, (3).  PLNU students who complete EDU 435 are exempt from taking EDU 625 for their preliminary single subject credential program but need to replace it with three hours of a graduate-level elective for the MAT degree.)
