TEDU 617. Instructional Models and the Curriculum. 3 Hours.
Semester course; 3 lecture hours. 3 credits. This course presents a layered, contextualized approach to curriculum and instruction. Students will consider broad families of instructional models. These models will then be reconsidered in light of current cognitive/psychological theories of learning and broader sociopolitical rationales that situate instruction. Throughout this three-tiered journey, students critically appraise and reappraise their initial understandings of instructional models and create a model of their own.
