Transcript of "Ed 533 syllabus applications and content integration ii polizzi dominican college"

  1. 1. Dominican College Division of Teacher Education ED 533: Applications and Content Integration II Focus: Mathematics and Science Professor Christopher Polizzi E-mail: Christopher.Polizzi@dc.edu or ChristopherPolizzi@gmail.com Class Meeting Dates 2/12, 2/26, 3/12, 3/26, 4/9 Division Rationale: Dominican College’s Division of Teacher Education, with its mission of Excellence, Leadership, and Service is committed to preparing teacher candidates who will be able to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. Thus, the goal of the program is to produce teachers who will: • Be flexible and caring, • Be personally responsible, • Have a multicultural perspective, • Be independent, reflective, lifelong learners who demonstrate continuous professional growth, • Demonstrate attitudes that promote positive human relationships and foster learning, • Address the diverse developmental and educational needs of each learner to assure success, • Recognize their increasing responsibilities in the classroom and in the community. (Also refer to Twenty Competencies in the TED) Course Description: 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 Mathematics and Science 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. 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. Students will be required to complete assignments in either the lab or at home. Required Text: Resources to be posted on line at class website, BB, and professional articles
  2. 2. Student Learning and Assessments: 1. Recognizes and discuss the importance of content area knowledge as the solid basis for lesson development. Students will engage in classroom activities, engage in discussions, write a reflective blog and prepare teaching and learning materials. 2. Promote content literacy through the use of the media. By careful analysis of the Mathematics and Science curriculum, students will create and evaluate media-based content rich teaching materials. 3. Develop the Appropriate Application of Technology Through the use of productivity tools, application software, hypermedia and/or educational video, students will evaluate, and create technologically enriched curriculum for teachers and students. 4. Use Evidence-Based Teaching Methods and Strategies for Lesson Development. Students will develop a repertoire of methods and materials to enhance teaching and learning in the P-12 curriculum including but not limited to webquests, cyberguides, games, blogs, wikis, webpages. Case studies will provide multiple examples. 5. Evaluate Learning Environments. Students will investigate and evaluate the optimum learning environments to match the learning mandate: environments that foster learning, creativity, independence, interaction, and team building. These may include inclusive classrooms with single or multiple computers, presentation stations, labs, studios, etc. 6. Incorporate Adult Learning Theory to construct a professional development workshop. 7. Develop collaboration skills and environments to enhance teacher effectiveness. Students will develop skills to become computer coordinators by creating professional development workshop materials, collaborating with P-12 teachers and honing professional development presentation skills. 8. Design and incorporate accommodations to teach every student in an inclusive classroom. Students will focus on how teaching materials may be modified to reach students with physical or learning disabilities. 9. Recognize and develop gender and culture sensitive materials to engage every student. Student created materials will reflect the importance of considering gender and culture in determining the best teaching practices to reach every student. 10. Provide a positive learning environment through evidence-based classroom management techniques Students will create Teacher Guides and Student Activities. Identify the purposes of assessment in educational practice today. Students will collaborate with teachers to create rubrics to match student activities.
  3. 3. Assessments: • Professional Development Materials – Create a professional development website for integrating technology into the science and math curricula to include guides/tutorials, screencasts, presentations and resources. Provide a PD for each topic. • Math/Science Lessons - Integrate technology and media into 3 science and 3 math lessons. Lesson plans must be written up and all materials posted to a website. • WebQuest - Create a WebQuest for a math topic and a science topic • Research - Create a social bookmarking archive for 5 topics in mathematics and 5 topics in science. Set up an RSS reader account following at least 10 resources. Create a Twitter account and follow at least 10 people. • Blog Posting and Comments - Search the Internet and/or professional publications and blogs to find 6 articles related to technology/math, technology/science and technology integration. Write reaction blog posts for each of the articles. Post should include a summary and how you would use the idea in your classroom or introduce it to another teacher. Each student is required to comment on everyone else’s articles. • Grant - Create an idea for a grant and write a one-page Problem (the problem you wish to address when requesting funds.)

  6. 6. In addition to class attendance, participation in class and online activities, punctuality, completion of class and outside readings, the following criteria will also influence grading: Quality of oral/written work (e.g. organization, presentation, knowledge of subject matter, neatness/legibility, scholarly format) Quality of oral/written English (e.g. spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, etc.) Assignments are to be completed following scholarly format and personal/professional integrity. All information from research MUST BE cited and referenced appropriately using APA 6th Edition format. Breaches of academic integrity (plagiarism) in any form will be penalized with an F in the course. Kindly mute all cellphones/electronic devices and refrain from all forms of texting during class meetings to maintain a scholarly, distraction-free environment. An assumption of this class includes the realization by all students that this is a graduate level course. As such the time commitment and scholarliness required for a satisfactory grade are implicit responsibilities of the student. If accommodations are required, please make certain that you speak confidentially with your professor at the beginning of the course. Also, please contact Margaret Giuliano, Director, Office of Special Services at Rosary Hall at 845-848-4035 or at margaret.giuliano@dc.edu . All assignments are due by 11:59:59 EST on the dates posted unless otherwise advised. Late assignments will not be graded nor will they receive credit. A minimum grade of B is required in all courses in MS in Education programs. Failure to earn a B will result in a repeat of the course; however, only one course in the program may be repeated. Undocumented lateness to class of up to ½ hour will result in ½ absence; undocumented lateness beyond ½ hour will be marked as absence. More than one absence in the class will result in a failing grade for the course. Time missed due to class absence will need to be made up according to program policy/instructor requirements AND will result in grade reduction.
