About EDSC 207 Z2

Participants in this class examine adolescent developmental and learning theories. Participation in a Service Learning Project allows students to apply their understanding of the content in the context of instructional settings, with an emphasis on supporting students identified as dealing with barriers to learning. A major goal of this course is to examine the relationship between theory and application of theory-based practice in the classroom. This course is a student-centered, teacher-guided exploration of theory, rather than a teacher centered lecture and test experience. Interactive and participatory activities are emphasized. Individual course projects are in-depth explorations of adolescence with a personalized focus, a corner stone of constructivist teaching. Group projects focus on social elements in learning another tenet of constructivism. Students will engage in activities and work that focuses on advocacy and collegiality, two essential components of teaching.
