EDUC 6540 - Pedagogy and Exemplary Practices for Learning in the Middle Grades♦


(3 sem. cr.) The focus of this course is on current pedagogical theories, instructional strategies, and best practices for teaching young adolescents in middle grades. Education professionals engage in assignments designed to provide practical application of content on such topics as instructional technology, research strategies, learning styles and multiple intelligence theory, cooperative learning structures and service learning, and instructional best practices in social equity and justice. They also have the opportunity to revise and reflect on their integrated unit, which they designed in a previous course. Through these activities, education professionals gain the knowledge and experience needed to create developmentally responsive curriculum, instruction, and assessment to promote high levels of learning in the middle grades.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
