Foundations of Middle School Teaching

This course is the foundation of the middle school program. It covers middle school philosophy, curriculum, and instruction; pre-adolescent development; and assessment. In the fall, it is held at a cooperating middle school, co-taught by school and GCE faculty. Students may combine the seminar with 75 hours of directed field work at our partner middle school, gaining direct experience with middle school children, curriculum, and instructional methods. In the spring, the course is taught on campus, as a regular 3-credit graduate course.
