Eval18: Interdisciplinary Speaking: Evaluating the Impacts of Collaboration between English Language Arts and Social Studies Methods Courses on Preservice Teachers 

12-30-2018 16:33

Communication and collaboration between teachers within and across disciplines is critical in education. Speaking about and sharing ideas from multiple perspectives allows educators to meet—and exceed—accountability expectations through the development and refinement of pedagogical skills to address students’ needs. At the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (UL Lafayette), preservice social studies and English language arts secondary teachers participate in the Vermilionville Education Enrichment Partnership (VEEP) as part of their content methods courses. For more than six years, VEEP, an academic service learning collaboration between Vermilionville, a living history museum and folklife park, UL Lafayette, and the Lafayette Parish School System (LPSS), has involved preservice teachers designing and implementing interdisciplinary lessons that are grounded in Acadian, Native American, and Creole cultures. Fall 2017 marked the first time that students in these two methods courses worked together, and this presentation shares how the impacts of this collaboration are being evaluated.
