CIEE 3220 Social Studies with Arts Integration

This course will prepare preservice teacher candidates (TCs) to build a conceptual base in the social studies (history, civics, cultural studies, political science, and other social sciences for elementary and middle school students) and language, visual and performing arts (music, dance, visual arts and theater) for facilitating learning for elementary students.  TCs will explore New Jersey Core Curriculum Content, Common Core, and National Council of Social Studies (NCSS) Standards in order to plan lessons that develop social studies, literacy, and aesthetic knowledge for students in today’s inclusive classrooms. Understanding the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards in the Arts (K-6) will allow TCs to explore, engage in, and evaluate interdisciplinary pedagogies to be implemented in the classroom. Diverse hands-on methodologies, differentiated teaching strategies and reflective assessments focusing on critical thinking and problem-solving skills will be intrinsic to this integrated course.
