Prepare for today's educational environment and obtain a Massachusetts Initial license.
This licensure-only program will prepare you for the challenges of the 21st Century classroom while not requiring enrollment in a full degree program. It incorporates our commitment to inclusive classrooms, differentiated instruction, and the integration of theory and practice, while offering instruction in literacy, teaching mathematics, science, and social studies, the inclusive classroom, and issues in American schooling.
The essence of this course focuses on those methods and materials that facilitate the teaching of social studies in the elementary classroom. Attention will be paid to the integration of technology as an instructional tool, the development of appropriate assessment models, and the synthesis of social studies with the humanities and natural sciences. Selecting, developing, teaching, and evaluating skills, concepts, and resources play an active role in class meetings.
