Admission to the BAS-TE program.

Examine the philosophies, methodologies, and instructional techniques necessary for selecting, implementing, and evaluating appropriate educational activities to support the physical, musical, and artistic development of elementary-aged students. Candidates will explore how learning in and through the arts supports academic and social/emotional learning for all students by providing multiple pathways to learning concepts, demonstrating understanding across all subject areas, and helping students to make deeper and more meaningful connections to learning. Candidates will apply learning by developing lesson plans and curriculum units that align instruction and assessment with learning goals, identifying a range of developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate instructional strategies, and incorporating methods that elicit student voice (including reflection related to learning targets, metacognitive strategies, and effective use of resources). This course will include opportunities to reflect on student teaching experiences.
