In this class, we focus on the classroom management side of teaching.

We study Jack Gantos' Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, a children's book about a child with ADHD.

We learn how to modify lesson plans to accommodate all sorts of exceptionalities.

STEM students will be placed in a High School to observe and teach. They will learn how to plan and implement an engaging lesson for a diverse classroom.
