This course positions secondary students to understand the relationship between curriculum theory and practice. With focus on creating learning environments that foster critical and imaginative thinking and problem solving, students design and present lesson plans and develop units that enable the adolescent (grades seven-12) to explore concepts and pursue a particular inquiry. Students will incorporate various forms of questioning and assessment, understand issues related to classroom management, and develop strategies to ensure that students with special education concerns are included. This course enables students to understand the importance of reflective teaching and prepares them for the student teaching experience. 4 credits
