Description:In this course, students will continue to refine their vision for high-quality instruction in an elementary language arts and mathematics classroom. With regard to language arts, students will build upon their understanding of best practices in elementary literacy by designing the structure for a balanced literacy block in their classrooms. These literacy blocks include instructional time devoted to explicit phonics instruction, shared reading, guided reading, read-aloud instruction, and vocabulary instruction. Students will also focus on writing instruction, and they will implement writing mini-lessons and student conferences in their classrooms. In the area of mathematics, this course will build on students' understanding of effective mathematics instruction and their knowledge of both direct instruction and inquiry-based approaches to learning. Students will explore effective instructional strategies through the lens of content, with a core focus in basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division); geometry, fractions, and measurement; and problem-solving, algebra, and graphing. By analyzing instruction through the lens of specific mathematical concepts, students will have the opportunity to design lessons that focus on the connections between mathematical content as well as the standards for mathematical practice. Students must have instructor approval to register.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
