CS 570 - Social Studies Early Childhood: Methods and Materials 0-Grade 2

This multi-focused course will emphasize the knowledge base of what young children should learn in the area of Social Studies. Current theories of social studies content that emphasize self-esteem, emotional intelligence, problem solving, and inquiry as they relate to the New York Standards are incorporated. Students will become familiar with relevant content areas such as curriculum integration, and children as researchers. Emphasis will also be on the role of differing culture, nurturing practices, communication style, attitudes of cultures toward disabilities, and how these factors affect the role of the early interventionist. Special Education Law as it pertains to the dominant role of parents, CPSE meetings and transitions, and the role of the interventionist and teacher will be explored.

4 credits. Summer.
This course requires five hours of fieldwork.
