Requirements for Licensure in Social Studies
"We Teach Citizenship Skills" - Successful citizenship depends on being able to interpret sources within their contexts. Social Studies helps students find the meanings in sources as diverse as a political speech or a pop song, a lawsuit or a Twitter post, and consider their significance before responding at the ballot box, online, or in the street. At Methodist University, Social Studies teachers do not merely learn the facts of History or Geography, they develop as historical thinkers, researchers, and writers, and learn to inculcate the same skills and habits in their students. We teach citizenship skills.
