Description: Prerequisite: Admission to the Teacher Education Program Co-requisite: EDUC3300 This course provides an overview of teaching and learning in the context of the contemporary American secondary school. Using an inquiry approach, candidates will build a comprehensive understanding of the interaction among the school, the curriculum, and the student in an effective secondary school. Candidates will explore national, state, and local content standards as well as other educational trends and policies that impact teaching in their respective content areas. Particular emphasis will be placed on four philosophical approaches to teaching (social, information-processing, personal, and behavioral), each of which has a strong history of research and development. Through classroom activities and field-based inquiry, candidates will explore selected teaching models that are representative of these four approaches, including the curricular orientations behind these models and their application in secondary content areas. Candidates will observe a variety of classroom management approaches, and will begin to develop a philosophy of classroom management based on knowledge about motivation and learning.
