EDU 5561: Classroom Management & Middle Childhood/Adolescence Education (3 cr.)
This course will focus on merging theory with practice in order to design a thoughtful and practical approach to classroom management and organization in middle childhood and adolescence. We will read and discuss various pedagogical theories related to schooling and attempt to apply them to real life classroom situations. Methods and techniques of effective teaching will be addressed, including organizing the classroom environment to include different learning styles, multilevel instruction, managing learning groups, behavioral intervention plans and the role of the teacher in establishing the culture and climate of the classroom. The final project requires a hypothetical plan for the policies and procedures you hope to institute in your own classroom. Eighteen hours of field experience are required for this class.
