EDUR 5026 Development of Elementary Methods and Literacy

3 semester hours

This course is a continuation of the Introduction to Elementary Methods course. It is designed to provide opportunities for elementary intern teachers to utilize current best practice pedagogy and create educational opportunities in multiple content areas in elementary classrooms. Because literacy is a foundational component of elementary education, the course is based on a progression of English Language Arts development with the integration of other disciplines including mathematics, social studies, science, the arts, physical education, and technology. Candidates will implement their knowledge of topics including classroom culture and management, inquiry in teaching and learning, differentiation, thematic unit and lesson planning, student engagement, and assessment for/as learning. Advance strategies for inclusion including RTI, MTSS, and UDL will be developed in this class. Course content is connected to culturally and linguistically diverse students, 21st century teaching and learning, and special population needs so interns can teach in fully inclusive classrooms. Work completed for this course is expected to align with candidates’ day-to-day teaching experience.

Prerequisite: EDUR 5025 .
