ED 380 - Methods in the Secondary Content Areas

This course supports the pre-service teacher in planning for teaching in the secondary school (Grades 5-8; 8-12). The course is interdisciplinary and will address the skills necessary to become a “best practice” teacher, particularly through addressing principles and standards articulated by the Massachusetts Professional Standards for Teachers and the Coomon Core State Standards. Professional responsibilities, classroom learning environments, planning instruction, assessing achievement, and teaching for meaningful learning for all students will be among the areas addressed. Research and theory will be connected to applied practice through a field experience component of a minimum of 25 hours.
