Master of Arts in Education: Preparation
XX 608: Management of Instruction
Management of Instruction is a course designed to provide development of basic philosophical, planning, and implementation skills related to the design and teaching of the curriculum. The course is a direct preparatory experience for the responsibilities of the internship.
Several of the Management of Instruction courses contain a field experience component. In these courses, the field experience component provides students the opportunity to teach selected lessons and units under the tutelage of a practiced classroom mentor teacher. That is, 608 is an intermediate step (between ED 393 and the internship) in the process of mediated entry into the teaching profession.
Truman students are translating theory into practice in realistic settings which provide opportunities to teach “real” students while being guided and coached by professionals from both the public schools and from the University. University students have already completed a minimum of 100 hours of field experiences in elementary, junior high/middle school, high school, special education, and at-risk settings. They have been involved in assisting teachers and working with students in classrooms and are now ready to teach in appropriate situations. This course is a prerequisite to the Teaching Internship, ED 609.
