EDU-3010 Social and Natural Science Methods for Elementary Teachers

3 credits

Prerequisite: Concurrent enrollment in EDU-3811.

In this course, students study social and natural phenomena through observation, experimentation and rational analysis, and learn to be objective while collecting data. A stress on the social, historical, economic, cultural and political processes of social science is balanced by an equal stress on topics belonging to natural sciences, such as electricity, forces and sound. Emphasis at all times is on methods and materials applicable to teaching elementary school children. This course is taught at our Professional Development School site.
