EDUR 5030 Advanced Secondary Mathematics and Literacy

2 semester hours

Candidates will learn how to coach students in developing the mathematical reasoning and procedural skills needed to design creative solutions to complex problems. The course includes inclusive approaches to engage diverse students and will use the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Principles to Actions framework as a foundation to meet the course outcomes. Advance strategies for inclusion including RTI, MTSS, and UDL will be developed in this class. Further, candidates in this course will critically reflect on the theory and practice of mathematical literacy. The focus of the course will be dedicated to improving mathematical teaching practice, with student evidence analysis as a cornerstone in the development of each candidate’s practice. Through this course, candidates will be provided the tools and practice to successfully complete the edTPA and the culminating REAL e-portfolio. This course will require active online and in-class assignments, discussions, and participation.

Prerequisite: EDUR 5029 .
