EDU 401-407 Special Methods
Each special methods course builds upon the previous course in literacy, enabling the student to further examine the methods and pedagogy specific to his discipline. The course will cover the remaining Indiana content standards for teachers, and introduce students to the Indiana P-12 standards, while examining the methods and procedures particular to each discipline in both classroom and field-based settings. Using the inquiry-based model introduced in Education 400, students will create a proposal for a field-based inquiry project to be conducted later in student teaching. The course is team-taught by liberal arts and high school faculty who will mentor candidates in their field-based experiences (practice in teaching) and with the initial development of the inquiry project. Laboratory experiences at the secondary level are required.
