EDUC 310 Methods of Teaching in Middle School

Students will learn how to design instruction which best complements the implications of the physical and emotional changes occurring within middle school students. Emphasis will be placed on cooperative learning, small group learning, and individual learning (i.e. contract learning). The development of integrated thematic units will be a major thrust for this course. The implementation of Teacher Expectations and Student Achievement (TESA) as a vehicle for classroom management will be an integral part of this course. Prerequisite: Admission to Teacher Education. Spring.
