Social Studies Undergraduate

The Integrated Social Studies (INSS) program prepares prospective teachers to teach all social studies classes, grades 7-12. If recommended for licensure, a teacher will be licensed to teach any social studies class in Ohio in 7th-12th grades.

The program is designed to prepare prospective teachers to be purposeful, deliberative decision-makers, reflective practitioners who prepare citizens who will then continue to contribute to the deepening of democracy, and promote the common good.

The vision is designed to prepare pre-service social studies teachers who:

  • Continuously reflect on their practice to help learn.
  • Engage in collaborative inquiry and partnerships to promote student learning and continued professional growth.
  • Create equitable classrooms that are responsive to the needs of all students.
  • Plan/organize meaningful lessons and assessments that promote active student engagement in worthwhile learning.
  • View themselves as curriculum developers who recognize that social studies content and curriculum are more than information in textbooks and standardized curriculum guide.
