Upon successful completion of this course, the student/teacher candidate will be able to:
- Plan and implement a learning segment (at least two days of planning instruction and assessment) based on the learner characteristics and school context of a local 4-9 mathematics classroom.
- appropriately choose concrete materials (manipulatives) and technology to plan and teach lesson in which students develop a deep understanding of mathematical ideas.
- Plan and implement a classroom management plan based on learner characteristics and school context for a local 4-9 mathematics classroom. The plan will include rationale for strategies that will promote student learning, encourage collaboration, cooperation, positive social interaction, conflict resolution skills, individual and group motivation, and value each learner’s unique contributions.
