ED 6160 - Teaching Middle and Secondary School Mathematics

(ED 4160)

Students will explore and practice the methods for teaching all children, with some special attention given to English language learners (ELLs), middle and secondary school mathematics. Students will problem solve and critically think about mathematics and mathematics teaching as they re-experience and begin to teach the mathematics of middle and secondary school. In order to develop the ability to evaluate and create mathematics curriculum and instructional plans, students develop lesson plans, a unit plan, collect student data, and begin the practice of data-driven decision making in the classroom. An emphasis is placed on the use of technology, activity-based learning experiences, and differentiated learning in the middle and secondary school classrooms. This course requires non-credit field placement experience.
