EDUC 4040 - Engaging Youth in Learning

Fall, spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

B. Duff.

Students study and apply key concepts and principles in curriculum design, assessment, and teaching. The focus is pre-teen and adolescent learners. In required fieldwork (2 hours weekly), students will use what they are learning to plan and run an after-school program on story-telling through film for local middle school students. (No prior knowledge of film required.)

Outcome 1: Navigate state and national standards documents in your discipline/content area, identifying the key factual, conceptual, and process standards.

Outcome 2: Use big ideas and essential questions (as defined by Wiggins & McTighe) to create engaging contexts for standards-based learning units.

Outcome 3: Develop performance-based assessments of key learning goals, and rubrics for evaluating student performance on them, that support valid inferences about student mastery.

Outcome 4: Divide the learning goals of a unit into realistic lesson-size “chunks.”

Outcome 5: Plan and flexibly implement lessons that use the following pedagogies to help students reach well-defined, standards-based goals: discussion, interactive lecture, modeling with gradual release of responsibility, and collaborative, problem-based learning.

Outcome 6: Arrange a classroom and devise instructions to minimize the likelihood of classroom management problems.

Outcome 7: Deal with minor classroom disruptions (e.g., a student talking out of turn) smoothly and without making students lose face.
