EDUR 5029 Introduction to Secondary Mathematics and Literacy

2 semester hours

Candidates will learn how to design, deliver, and assess mathematics instruction for all students in grades 6-12. This course focuses on creating learning experiences in mathematics that are active, connected, sensory, emotional, and center on problem solving and communication as fundamental to learning mathematics. Candidates learn how to teach mathematical thinking through the eight Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices within the context of storytelling and the engineering design process. Candidates learn how to engineer high impact instruction through the Mathematics Learning by Design (MLD) five instructional moves (lesson cycle) and a unique grading system that supports assessment as learning for all students, including English Learners (EL) and students with disabilities (SN). Candidates will also be expected to be able to plan for effective subject matter instruction and use multiple means of representing, expressing, and engaging students. Through on-line course experiences, candidates will model and develop digital literacy for instruction.
