EDUC672 - Integrated Elementary Language Arts and Social Studies


This course explores the keys to successful integration of language arts into the elementary social studies curriculum. It will enhance understanding and appreciation of social studies content and processes and language arts skills that promote progress toward social education goals. Social studies is integrative by nature (National Council for the Social Studies, 2009). Powerful and purposeful social studies incorporates language arts skills to help young learners use context clues to suggest meaning, decipher maps and charts, and interpret primary and secondary source documents. Knowing innovative ways to integrate language arts into the social studies curriculum is extremely important. A high quality integrative social studies and language arts curriculum brings forth carefully chosen Big Ideas and Essential Understandings with authentic action to promote social understanding and civic efficacy. This course will delineate the integrative nature of elementary social studies and explore the ways in which literature adds depth and breadth. (Prerequisite: EDUC503)
