EDU 397 - Social Science Inquiry in Context


Prerequisites: EDU 200  and EDU 202 
The primary focus of this course is to enhance the engagement of students through inquiry-based teaching and learning in the secondary classroom. The course offers a rich variety of ideas and resources for teachers regarding historical thinking, the selection of content, methods, problem solving, deliberative discussion, the use of primary sources, and ways to assess students’ learning. Teachers of history will discover and explore ways to activate the “historian” present in all students, heighten historical consciousness, and help students think critically about historical events. Field experiences include observing the teaching and learning of history in the high school classroom as well as co-teaching an inquiry-based lesson with a cooperating teacher.
