ECU 561 Curriculum Design and Evaluation

This block focuses on the development of effective instructional techniques to ensure that all students achieve their full potential. Emphasis is placed on providing the curricular structure needed for developing and evaluating comprehensive, and research based best practices in instruction. Candidates deepen their knowledge of evidence-based best practices and the scaffolding of learning targets in order to promote and implement high rates of student achievement in current classroom settings. Candidates develop a program designed to apply instructional skills with P-12 students. Topics include investigation of literary and expository text selections, diagnosis, planning, assessment with analytic interpretation—all guided by current learning targets and standards. The assessment of the final artifact will be guided by the course rubric.
