EDU 6560 - Curriculum Development

3 cr
In this course students will study curriculum development concerning state requirements contained in the Vermont Public School Approval Standards. New innovations in curricular design will be explored with the aid of area resource people. The findings of recent research and reports on teaching and learning will also be studied. The impact of such social issues as the back-to-basics movement, child abuse and sexual abuse, alcohol and drug use, and changes in federal government priorities will be discussed. Each student will complete a multi-grade curriculum development project in a field of his or her choice (e.g. language arts, science, math, social studies, health, vocational education, the fine arts).
