ED 6770 - The Middle School: Foundations, Philosophy, and Structure

(ED 4770)

In this course, we will examine the history and structure of the middle school in addition to the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive make-up of pre-adolescents. We will compare middle schools to traditional junior high schools to determine how the specific needs of students in these grade levels are being addressed in different ways. Teaming, advisory groups, exploratory courses, and the flexibility of teaching core curriculum are some of the topics we will explore. The graduate-level course requires independent accelerated additional coursework appropriate for the graduate level.
