The overall goal is for Mines students to understand who their K-12 students are and how they learn, including learner development and learner differences. Specifically, the course will focus on developing Mines students’ ability to identify and practice basic classroom management, differentiated instruction, asking probing questions, science content preconceptions, language/activities that promote a growth mindset, and professional language. Furthermore, Mines students will begin exploring the factors that shape school norms and culture. In addition to an on-campus seminar, there is a 25 hour field experience requirement in the assigned partner school.
