EDU 612 - Differentiated Mathematics Instruction for All Learners (TPA 2)


This methodology course addresses the planning of content-specific instruction and delivery of content consistent with Common Core (K-8) mathematics standards and the language needs of all learners. The interrelated components of a balanced program of mathematics and the fostering of positive attitudes toward mathematics are stressed. This course includes instruction in how to model concepts and teach learners to solve problems using multiple strategies and to anticipate, recognize, and clarify mathematical misunderstandings that are common among (K-8) learners. This course includes intentional practice of classroom management, active and equitable participation for culturally, ethnically, linguistically, and academically diverse learners, lesson planning, and formative assessment to differentiate instruction for all learners. Modifications for diverse learners and learners with exceptionalities are researched and applied through field work experience. Technology for teaching and learning is integrated in the course. It is through this course that each candidate completes the CalTPA task “Designing Instruction” as a performance-based measure of the knowledge and skills taught in this course.
