ED 588 - Teaching in the Middle Grades
(2 cr.) This course focuses on the instructional methods, curricular materials and classroom environment needed to increase the academic motivation and achievement of middle school students. Secondary pre-service teachers have the opportunity to explore middle school philosophy and learn about the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth these early adolescents experience as they transition from childhood to the more complicated world of adolescence. In addition, students explore the delicate balance between maintaining high standards and providing the close, supportive relationships that middle grade students need to thrive.
