Collaborative Curriculum Integration on the Issue of Bullying in Schools
Tuesday, March 8 1:30 PM-2:30 PM Location: Bellmeade
Abstract: As part of our teacher education program, preservice teachers enroll in coursework linked to a methods’ block of content area classes. For the research, we concentrated on the content areas of reading, writing, social studies, and technology. Three teacher educator colleagues initiated this research to better prepare preservice teachers related to the widespread concern of bullying in schools, while at the same time, modeling curriculum integration in three separate courses. In this presentation we will share our progress to date as part of this on-going project. Highlights shared will include reading, writing, social studies, and technology integration and the creation and assessment of new assignments in all three undergraduate courses.
