Building upon prior course work on how people learn, this two-block course uses the specific context of the practicum sites to focus students’ application of literacy, planning, teaching and assessment in the candidate’s discipline/level. Elementary and secondary teacher candidates examine in-depth developmentally effective approaches for meeting diverse students’ learning needs. Teacher candidates analyze and adapt curriculums and pedagogies that facilitate learning, while examining the relationship of theory to practice in discipline specific contexts. Special emphasis is placed on literacy, numeracy, Common Core Standards, 21st Century Skills, integration, data-driven instruction, and special education. Breakout sessions with content specialists for varying levels and subjects deepen teacher candidates’ skills in becoming self-analytic and reflective teachers.
Prerequisite: Education 477 and MAT or Teacher Licensure Candidate.
