Curriculum and Instruction for Secondary Teachers


This course provides an in-depth look at secondary curricula and instructional practices in order to equip teacher candidates across a spectrum of disciplines with the knowledge and skill needed to implement meaningful teaching and learning in their future classrooms. By drawing from educational research in curriculum studies and related fields, students will examine the foundations of their discipline's curriculum, consider avenues for the implementation of culturally responsive pedagogy, and gain strategies for engaging contemporary issues facing secondary teachers (e.g. controversy, burnout). A strong emphasis will be placed on connecting with colleagues in different disciplines and exploring the possibilities for interdisciplinary instruction.
