EDUC 312  Analysis of Teaching and Learning                       3 credits
An introduction to a systematic approach to instruction. Special emphasis is placed on developing performance objectives, planning teaching strategies and formulating evaluation instruments to assess learning. The use of technological resources in instructional planning is emphasized. Students will develop skills to create meaningful learning experiences for students of diverse cultural, ethnic, linguistic and intellectual backgrounds. These skills are then practiced in actual teaching situations. Note: This course will allow transfer students to obtain early admission to UMBC and complete the requirements for admission to teacher candidacy before their first full semester. Successful completion of this course is required to be accepted as an education student/teacher candidate. Prerequisite: Permission of the department. For more information contact vwilli5@umbc.edu.

          Classroom                                         
Science inquiry is supported by the authentic integration of science and literature. Books offer diverse approaches to science and multiple ways to learn about science. They provide students with opportunities to witness and experience the remote, the exotic, the distant, the close-up, as well as the past, present and future. Some books provide expertise; some entice the imagination; others spark interest and excitement; still others inspire thoughtful reflection. In this course, you will explore a variety of science-related literature and think about how to select and evaluate science trade books for use in the classroom. The course will then focus on how to integrate and use science literature in the classroom. Opportunities will be provided for both teacher-directed and student-initiated activities that incorporate and use science trade books across the curriculum. NOTE: This course is offered through a partnership with Heinemann Publishing. To be eligible for graduate credit for this course, you must first enroll as a student through HeinemannU (www.heinemannu.com). Please call 1-800-541-2086 x1290 for additional information about registering with Heinemann.
