EDE477 Teaching and Learning in the Content Areas

Introduces teacher candidates and in-service teachers to key issues in learning and teaching specific content areas, with particular foci on mathematics, science, and history/social studies. Identifies and critically examines what it means to think and learn within and across particular disciplines, within implications for designing and enacting pedagogies that focus on meaningful learning and accessibility to all students. Consists of several innovative, modeled learning experiences, led by experts in each subject matter, alongside critical examinations of K-12 learning experiences and curricular, and instructional materials. The course is especially relevant to "generalists" who will be expected to support students’ learning in all subjects, but could also be valuable to teachers interested in interdisciplinary collaborations, education professionals playing instructional support roles, and teacher candidates who want to explore alternative specializations before making a decision. (Meets content-pedagogy requirement for professional teaching certification).
