EDUC500-01 Child Development 3 Pinkney-Ragsdale, Troy Mondays 05:15-09:00PM, Wednesdays 05:15-09:00PM
In this course we will examine the interactions among the cognitive, social, emotional, linguistic, and physical development of children from infancy into adolescence. We will pay close attention to children as makers of meaning in the contexts of their development, including family, school, socioeconomic class, and culture. Through reading classic and current literature, we will attend to some of the larger questions about development, such as the relationship between nature and nurture, the role of developmental theory, and the tension between the search for developmental universals and the reality of individual differences. The goal is to make developmental theory vibrant and meaningful so that the generalized theoretical child comes to enhance and inform how one understands individual children.

LEAD827-01 Understanding Quantitative Data: Implications for Educational Leaders 3 Flegar, Elizabeth Mondays 03:30-05:30PM, Tuesdays 03:30-05:30PM, Wednesdays 03:30-05:30PM, Thursdays 03:30-05:30PM
The goal of this course is to educate the school leader in the understanding the use of quantitative data for improving instruction in schools. The course will deal with the mathematics of statistics and data collection so that school leaders are better equipped to understand the information provided to them, ask better questions, make better choices about what data they should collect, and what the data tells about the skills and understandings of the student. In addition we will look into bias in data collection and interpretation, who the players are in the data collection and interpretation, and how to communicate the data so that the school community will understand its implications. The course will use a case study approach. The mathematical ideas will be developed through the use of concrete materials, databases, and tools such as Excel, Google Forms, and a calculator.
This course is for 3rd-summer Math Leadership students only.

MATH525-01 Mathematics for Leaders of Inclusive Schools: Supporting Teachers in Meeting the Needs of All Learners 3 Withers, Amy Elizabeth Mondays 08:30-10:30AM, Tuesdays 08:30-10:30AM, Wednesdays 08:30-10:30AM, Thursdays 08:30-10:30AM, Fridays 08:30-10:30AM 7/08/2019 - 8/02/2019
This course will provide teachers and leaders with a deeper understanding of the mathematics they need to know to help others refine and deepen math instruction in schools. They will learn how people learn math, and how to meet the mathematical needs of a wide range of learners-both adults and children. This course is grounded in a constructivist approach to learning and teaching. As such, we seek to form a community of learners in which each participant is constructing his or her own understanding of mathematics, and what it means to be teachers and leaders of mathematics.

A degree can only be conferred for currently enrolled students. If students are not registered for classes, the Integrative Master's Project, or supervised fieldwork in the semester they intend to graduate, they must register for matriculation maintenance by the end of the add/drop period. This situation might occur, for example, if students are completing coursework for a prior class in which they received a grade of Incomplete.
