Educators are trained to understand human development through social and emotional learning. The concept is relatively new, but has become increasingly popular. Developing these skills can help educators to become successful in their chosen professions.
These skills include self-management, interpersonal skills, and relationship skills. They can help teachers and students to be successful in their lives. They are also necessary to contribute to a rapidly changing global workforce.
In addition to developing core skills, students must also have a curriculum relevant to their career goals. General education courses help to expand students’ fundamental knowledge and encourage them to develop a strong sense of self. They should also expand students’ aesthetic sensibilities. They are designed to promote critical thinking, objectivity, and a curiosity about learning. The curriculum should also encourage students to apply their knowledge in real-world situations.
The curriculum is designed to foster students’ development of successful behaviors, which will lead to lifelong learning. The curriculum also encourages students to be reflective of their experiences and to use assessment to improve their practice. Students in these courses will learn to evaluate their practice and to produce written and oral analyses of the curriculum.
The course focuses on developing effective instructional strategies and methods for teaching diverse learners. The course will introduce students to a variety of instructional techniques and will cover assessment that is performance-based, ongoing, and multidimensional. Students will also be taught to use various approaches to classroom management and to design positive behavioral support plans.
This course will introduce students to the principles of educational design, including the use of play and the integration of literacy and language across the curriculum. Students will learn to apply these principles to their own teaching and to their classrooms. It is a good course for educators who want to become administrators or teacher-leaders.
The course is taught by instructors who are experienced teachers. The curriculum is designed to promote student-centered learning and encourage students to develop their own best teaching styles. Students will participate in group discussions, which will analyze classroom problems and provide solutions.
In addition to the curriculum, students must complete a variety of courses to qualify for the major. These include courses in the foundations of education, a course in pedagogy, and electives. Each course must be completed with a C or better. In addition to these courses, students must take six teacher seminars. These seminars are not credit-bearing, but they can be used to help students learn more about a specific subject. Students may also take up to three courses outside the Educational Studies Department. The courses must be taken at a degree-granting institution that is accredited by an institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
Students also complete a capstone course, which combines intensive study of a specific area of interest in education with an internship or independent study. Students will also be required to teach in a local school setting for four semesters. In addition, students must complete 30 hours of field experience.
