EDCI 5610 - Middle Grades Language Arts (3)
This course is designed to develop research-based effective pedagogical practices in the area of Language Arts while enhancing content knowledge of the candidate. Candidates will use current planning processes (e.g., Universal Design for Learning and Understanding by Design) to ensure a cohesive plan, clearly aligned implementation, and well-designed assessment. Field experiences provide an opportunity to work with a master teacher to plan a Curriculum Inquiry Project that will be implemented during the internship. Additionally, like professional educators, candidates will systematically engage in focused reflection–linking the course knowledge and pedagogy with current classroom practices during field experiences. The course will also enable the candidate to effect positive change with Language Arts in a Middle-School. Field Observation hours are also required.
