Social Studies Standards Module Training
The inclusion of Social studies in early childhood environments is important in order to nurture children's understanding of themselves and others. Through Social Studies children learn to become active, responsible citizens and what the expectations of these citizens are. In this interactive session, participants will delve into the Social Studies Early Learning Standard in order to gain practical ideas to help children acquire skills in problem solving, decision making, and critical thinking that can then be integrated in to all aspects of their world.

Participants will:
identify the five strands and corresponding concepts for the Arizona Early Learning Social Studies Standard.
Scrutinize the relationship between social studies and the desired outcomes for students as future leaders and citizens.
Identify and apply strategies that can be used to teach diversity, individual rights, individual and group responsibilities, role of citizenship, spatial terms, family identity and foundations of economics.
Identify and affect strategies that nurture children's understanding of both themselves and others as well as promote acquiring problem solving and decision making skills.
Explain the interconnectedness between all areas of the Arizona Early Learning Standards.
Evaluate their own early learning environment and develop an action plan to implement in both their classroom and community
