Education for the 21st Century of change and innovation demands problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
This course approaches the teaching of context areas with a student-focused lens that engages inquiring minds with the small group exploration of open-ended problems. Lesson structure, activities, and assessment will be integral to the course. This course requires five hours of observation in a local secondary school. Additional assignments are required beyond those of EDUC 319. Credit cannot be earned for EDUC 519 and EDUC 319.
