TED 3550 SECONDARY CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT (3 credits)
This is a general methods course required of all candidates preparing to teach at the secondary level. Candidates will apply educational sequence competencies in understanding the characteristics of effective teachers by learning how to apply the three components of effective pedagogy: 1) use of instructional strategies, 2) use of classroom management strategies, and 3) effective classroom curriculum design. Candidates will also examine the changing role of the secondary school and selected professional issues in secondary education and be able to apply key ideas of classroom management. Candidates must demonstrate competencies related to performance in 7-12 classrooms. This is the third in a series of four required practicum experiences prior to the clinical practice semester.
