SeEd 4102f. Block II: Teaching and Learning Strategies. (4 cr; prereq admission to the secondary teacher education program; coreq 4101, 4103, 4104, 4105, methods; A-F only)

Field experience in the middle and secondary school.

Rationale (see instructions): 

University policy defines one credit and three hours of learning effort per week.  Currently, students complete at least 150 hours of learning effort in their practicum placement.  In addition, students complete professional seminars and other activities.  Therefore, the learning effort required by this course is well in excess of the current two credit load and the credit load should be augmented to four credits.

Capstone experience. Professional development issues and philosophy of education, including portfolio assessment.

Rationale (see instructions): 

Previous grading basis in ECAS was inaccurate (Student Option) and has been changed to A-F only.  The courses listed have been required by the discipline to be taken A-F to meet state licensure requirements.

 

Course Revision #7-10

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

EngE 4121f. Methods of Teaching Communication Arts and Literature in the Middle and Secondary School. (4 3 cr; coreq EngE 4122; A-F only)

MthE 4121f. Methods of Teaching Mathematics in the Middle and Secondary School. (4 3 cr; coreq MthE 4122; A-F only)

SciE 4121f. Methods of Teaching Science in the Middle and Secondary School. (4 3 cr; coreq SciE 4122; A-F only)

SScE 4121f. Methods of Teaching Social Science in the Middle and Secondary School. (4 3 cr; coreq SScE 4122; A-F only)

Rationale (see instructions): 

Each of these courses contains content pertaining to middle level learners and is taken by students studying to be grade 5-12 teachers, which encompasses middle level and thus the title should reflect this.  Since the courses now integrate more middle level content, the credit load must be changed to more accurately reflect the content of the courses.  Finally, this four credit course replaces two courses (3 credits and 1 credit) and will enhance the registration process as students now register for one course rather than a combination of two.

 

Course Revision #11-14

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

EngE 4122f,s. Methods of Teaching Communication Arts and Literature in the Middle School. (1 cr; A-F only)

SciE 4122f,s. Methods of Teaching Science in the Middle School. (1 cr; A-F only)

SScE 4122f,s. Methods of Teaching Social Science in the Middle School. (1 cr; A-F only)

Rationale (see instructions): 

While these courses still exist, they are primarily geared toward the elementary education program and will no longer be taken by students in the secondary education program.  Therefore, they have been eliminated from the Secondary Education section of the catalog.

ThE 4123f. Methods of Teaching Dance and Theatre Arts K-12. (4 cr; A-F only)
