ED 621 - Classroom Context

Prerequisite: Permission of Department Chair.

Course Description: This course focuses on how to plan and teach, using the learning standards as both bodies of knowledge and ways of asking and answering questions, in ways that contribute meaning to the lives of children and their families. You will be provided with models for instructional planning and teaching that incorporates different approaches to learning and integrates technology as both content and tool. The "Caring Classroom" is presented as a context for teaching and learning that is both accepting and empowering. Literacy is examined both from the perspective of students whom leaning to read is an emergent process and those for whim literacy is difficult to attain and requires direct instruction. Literacy and the use of children's literature provide a context for instructional strategies across the subject areas of mathematics, science, and social studies. This coursework is provided as a component of a pre-service TFA or New York City Teaching Fellow Institute.
