EDU 302 Teaching Adolescents: General Methods
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. Required observations in local high school are followed by teaching in the school. The Chicago Urban Education & Cultural Experience is a required part of the junior education student’s program. 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 EDU 201 or to take the fall section of EDU 302 in the junior year.) This course is offered in the fall and spring semester.
