ED 530 Applications and Content Integration I (3)
This course is designed to develop the student's leadership role in creating and evaluating media-based, content-rich resources for the P-12 classroom. Students will utilize the motivational and instructional qualities of various media to enhance curriculum in the English and Social Studies content areas, while developing peer-mentoring and professional development skills. Materials will be prepared for use by teachers and students in order to enhance teaching and learning in the content areas, as well as for developing critical evaluation skills in these target populations. Instructional videos, instructional television programming, documentaries, film and web resources will be used to develop these materials. Another major emphasis of this course is to hone students' story-telling skills as this is a major component in the delivery of media in all forms. All assignments will be stored online in the Central EdMedia Reference Library for community access and attached to Student Portfolio. 5 hours of field experience required in elementary and secondary schools for teacher certification. Laboratory hours required.
