Candidates incorporate methods in the content areas to address the diverse backgrounds of their students, including culture, language (dialect and ESOL), disabilities, and giftedness. Candidates teach lessons in the content areas focused on text-based concept development. Candidates observe, participate and teach in school classrooms one day per week. Prerequisite(s): ED 266
