This course is designed to engage students in the process of constructing knowledge, gaining skills, and participating in experiences that will help them develop curricula and create effective learning environments for students in middle and secondary grades (6 - 12) and art and technology. The major areas of focus of this course are the nature of the teaching/learning process, planning for instruction, accounting for the nature of children, balancing multiple modes of instruction, integrating instruction across content disciplines, using resources and tools (such as technology) to enhance instruction, as well as creating and managing dynamic learning environments in which all students learn. Students will become familiar with and demonstrate evidence of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for effective beginning teaching. During the field placement with a local teacher, students begin developing and practicing basic skills necessary to teach in their content specialization area. 1 Course Credit
