EDG 4935 - Special Topics II in Middle and Secondary School Education


2 credit(s)
Prerequisite(s): Students must have written permission from the instructor. Students must be able to work in a high school setting one hour a day five days per week throughout the semester. Students must complete a level II background check and be fingerprinted through the Lee County School District.
Prior to enrolling in any upper level course (course number beginning with a 3 or 4), students must complete the following courses with a grade of “C” or better: ENC 1101 English Composition I, ENC 1102 English Composition II, and three semester hours of college level mathematics; or permission from the appropriate academic dean.

This course is designed for baccalaureate level students interested in engaging middle and secondary school students in experiential and service learning opportunities. The course focuses on historical learning theorists and learning theories as related to service and experiential learning. The experiential learning curriculum developed during this course will entail three tenets: the knowledge gained through concepts, facts, and information acquired through the formal learning process and past experiences; the application of knowledge to a real world setting; and the analysis and synthesis of knowledge to create meaning for 6-12 students. The course will focus on careers associated with middle and secondary school Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math curriculum.
