Secondary Education


What will I learn?

Enhance your knowledge, competency and professional skills that are needed in today’s secondary classroom environment. You will become not only an effective teacher but also a leader in secondary education. Check out a few of the classes you'll be taking.

This class explores typical and atypical growth and development of human beings from birth through adolescence. Relevant research and learning theory are examined, especially as they relate to a teacher’s ability to provide learning opportunities that support the physical, cognitive emotional and social development of children and adolescents. An emphasis is placed on individual and group behavior and motivation, active engagement in learning and self-motivation.
