EDU 302 Teaching Adolescents in the High School
The course is the first instructional methods course 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 using technology in their instruction. Required observations in local high school are followed by teaching in the school, and urban observation and teaching. Level: Admitted Juniors only, except by permission of the Director of Teacher Education. (Education students who are planning to study abroad would be encouraged to take this course either as sophomores along with Education 201 or to take the fall section of Education 302 in the junior year.) This course is offered in the spring and fall semesters, 2008-2009.
