EEDUC 6204 The Middle School: Historical Context and Promising Practice

This course examines the promising practices of the contemporary middle school philosophy through a combination of field-based experiences and examination of the historical forces that shape the character of schooling in a democratic society. Students, as pre and in-service practitioners, will investigate the student-centered, team-integrated, interdisciplinary approach in light of its ability to simultaneously address both state standards and frameworks while providing for the needs of emerging adolescents.
