Creating Meaningful Learning through E.C. Social Studies
Focus on: Ages 4 – 6 Years
Course Number: TEWS719N
The Bank Street model is based on an integrated curriculum with social studies at the core. In this workshop, we will focus broadly on how to design and set up an integrated K-1 curriculum. We will explore the role of literacy, math, science, and art activities that incorporate work with materials and play. The workshop will address the Common Core Standards and include ways of making activities more inclusive to address the needs of a diverse student population. The unique and specific contexts of the participants' settings will be taken into account and discussed.
