About the Curriculum

The Adolescence Education program closely examines the characteristics of the high school organization. The curriculum addresses such fundamental questions as: What is the teaching-learning connection? How do issues of race, class, gender and cultural diversity affect the classroom experience? How has the American school system responded over time to rapid changes in American society? The program will examine the entire range of adolescent psychological development, including cognition, social relationships, stress, self esteem, physical and mental health, and political and moral development. After a thorough grounding in a variety of instructional methods and materials, you will put what you have learned into practice in a full semester of supervised student teaching.
