Students study and apply key concepts and principles in curriculum design, assessment, and teaching. The focus is pre-teen and adolescent learners. In required fieldwork (2 hours weekly), students will use what they are learning to plan and run an after-school program on story-telling through film for local middle school students. (No prior knowledge of film required.)
When Offered Fall, Spring.
Course Attribute (CU-CEL)
- Navigate state and national standards documents in your discipline/content area, identifying the key factual, conceptual, and process standards.

- Develop performance-based assessments of key learning goals, and rubrics for evaluating student performance on them, that support valid inferences about student mastery.
- Divide the learning goals of a unit into realistic lesson-size "chunks."
- Plan and flexibly implement lessons that use the following pedagogies to help students reach well-defined, standards-based goals: discussion, interactive lecture, modeling with gradual release of responsibility, and collaborative, problem-based learning.
- Arrange a classroom and devise instructions to minimize the likelihood of classroom management problems.
- Deal with minor classroom disruptions (e.g., a student talking out of turn) smoothly and without making students lose face.
