EDU 302 Teaching Adolescents in the High School
The course is the first instructional one in the program. It includes a study of methodologies used in culturally responsive instruction and assessment for a diversity of students (ethnicity, gender, class, and special needs). Students will learn to plan instruction, and will implement these plans while teaching locally as well as at an urban area high school. The technology introduces students to more foundations using the INTEL system, for using technology in instruction. Required observation in local high school are followed by teaching in area schools, and urban observation and teaching. Level: Admitted Juniors only, except by permission of the Director. (Students who are planning to go abroad and into education also would be encouraged to take this course either as sophomores along with the Education 201 course described above or to take the fall section of Education in the junior year). This course is offered in the spring and fall semesters.
