  • EDTR 5100: This course is designed to provide high school educators with the opportunity to investigate different resources to enhance their current teaching practices. The selected resources for this course will highlight different pedagogies and techniques which can be used to more effectively teach Algebra I. The course will also provide a broad overview of the content knowledge necessary to effectively teach Algebra I and will depend heavily on standards and resources developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) which provided the underpinnings for the new CCSSM.

  • EDTR 5200:  Algebra I:  Content Refresher and Pedagogy Enhancement for Teachers (3 Graduate Credits).  Prerequisite: Knowledge of Algebra I content and at least an undergraduate degree.  A study of methods, techniques, and materials of instruction in middle and high school mathematics, to provide a content refresher component that adheres to the common core standards for mathematics.

  • EDTR 5205: This course is designed to provide high school educators with the opportunity to investigate different resources to enhance their current teaching practices. The selected resources for this course will highlight different pedagogies and techniques which can be used to more effectively teach Algebra II. The course will also provide a broad overview of the content knowledge necessary to effectively teach Algebra II and will depend heavily on standards and resources developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) which provided the underpinnings for the new CCSSM.

  • EDTR 5210: To provide experiences that prompt thoughts about learning that cause teachers to bring to surface new theories about learning and enhance the way they teach. To learn techniques to effectively teach Geometry for grades 6 - 12. To provide a content refresher component. To connect with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards.

  • EDTR 5215: This course is designed to provide high school educators with the opportunity to investigate different resources to enhance their current teaching practices. The selected resources for this course will highlight different pedagogies and techniques which can be used to more effectively teach Pre-Calculus. The course will also provide a broad overview of the content knowledge necessary to effectively teach Pre-Calculus and will depend heavily on standards and resources developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) which provided the underpinnings for the new CCSSM.

  • EDTR 5220: This course is available to students with knowledge of the Middle School Mathematics curriculum as defined by each student’s state and at least an undergraduate degree. This course is designed to provide middle school educators with the opportunity to investigate different resources to enhance their current teaching practices. The selected resources for this course will highlight different pedagogies and techniques which can be used to more effectively teach middle school mathematics. The course will also provide a broad overview of the content knowledge necessary to effectively teach middle school mathematics and will depend heavily on standards and resources developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) which provided the underpinnings for the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Our five Modules will be divided using the Common Core strands for middle school as our guideline.

  • EDTR 5225: This course is designed to provide high school educators with the opportunity to investigate different resources to enhance their current teaching practices. The selected resources for this course will highlight different pedagogies and techniques which can be used to more effectively teach Calculus I. The course will also provide a broad overview of the content knowledge necessary to effectively teach Calculus I and will rely heavily on standards and resources developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) which provided the underpinnings for the new CCSSM. Being an Advanced Placement (AP) teacher is not a requirement for enrollment in this course. Although this course is not endorsed by the AP College Board, the course will often present material/strategies from an AP standpoint due to the quality of enrichment this can have for any teacher’s college-bound students.

  • EDTR 5250: This course is designed to provide high school educators with a deeper look at the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM). We will look at the reasons the CCSSM were developed, how these new standards alter the way educators approach student learning, and what changes need to be made to begin implementing the standards in both everyday lessons and in new assessment techniques. The course will depend heavily on standards and resources developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), which provided the underpinnings for the CCSSM.

  • EDTR 5300: Chemistry I:  Teaching Chemistry within the New Framework for K-12 Science Education: (3 Graduate Credits);  Prerequisite: Knowledge of general chemistry content and an undergraduate degree.  A study of teaching strategies for implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) framework.  The course will focus on the integration of chemistry content, cross-cutting concepts, and science practices through innovative video lessons and activities.  Students will view and analyze videos of exemplary chemistry lessons, reflect on their teaching and how to improve practice, and review core chemistry concepts.

  • EDTR 5400: Biology I: Teaching Biology within the New Framework for K-12 Science Education (Covering the Topics of Biodiversity and Ecology); (3 Graduate Credits);  Prerequisite:  Knowledge of biology content and an undergraduate degree.  The goal of this course is to refresh and update biological content knowledge in the areas of biodiversity and ecology.  Participants will review “A Framework for K-12 Science Education” and begin the integration of the New Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in these topics.  Active learning strategies will be examined in the presentation of these areas of emphasis.

  • EDTR 5500: The goal of this course is to refresh and update content knowledge in ecology. Participants will review “A Framework for K-12 Science Education” and begin the integration of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in this topic.  Active learning strategies will be examined in the presentation of this area of emphasis.

  • EDTR 5600: This course will focus on examination of the best practices regarding effective teaching practices and behavior change strategies for students with special educational needs. It provides an opportunity to explore, design, implement, and evaluate school-based interventions for students with high and low incidence disabilities in the general education classroom in K-12 schools with the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Content Standards aligned to this course.
