EDU6512 Disciplinary/Interdisciplinary Methods of Teaching in Secondary Schools (3)
Students examine research, theory, methods, and materials for teaching subject-specific classes in grades 7-12. Topics include diagno-sis/prescription and the use of varied methodologies/materials for providing successful learning experiences for students. Emphasis is placed on the use of state frameworks and curricular standards, as well as national standards where appropriate, in short- term and long-range planning. A minimum of ten (10) hours of subject-specific instruction observation in a classroom with students from cultural, linguistic, ethnic, or socioeconomic backgrounds different from that of the teacher credential candidate are re-quired. Special Consideration: Candidates must pass all appropriate CSET examinations prior to enrolling in the course; prerequisite for EDU6321 Cur-riculum Development and Instructional Design for Secondary School Teachers.
