EDUC 5440 - [Curriculum and Instruction]


     
Spring. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: EDUC 2410  or permission of instructor.

B. P. Duff.

Focuses on deep exploration of two questions: What should students be learning in schools? How do students best learn these things? Exploration of the first question depends heavily on readings from educational philosophy, and exploration of the second uses research from cognitive science.

Outcome 1: Students will be able to clearly articulate and compellingly defend answers to the question of what students should learn in K-12.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to design a curriculum for a course using the backward-design approach.

Outcome 3: Students will understand, and be able to develop strategies to implement, basic principles of learning and motivation in K-12 classrooms.
