Secondary teaching methods courses
Secondary teachers must engage their students in new and unique ways in order to have an impact. In order to engage students and improve outcomes they must adapt their techniques for the secondary level. This challenge can be met through developing new teaching strategies and practical ways to encourage learning.
Meeting the needs of the secondary environment requires ongoing growth and development. Our secondary teaching methods courses help single-subject educators create a collaborative and effective classroom. You can examine current trends, delve into specific topics like art or reading instruction or survey national and state standards.
Our secondary teaching methods courses are designed to help you gain new insight and increased knowledge in your area of study. These courses might also help you meet criteria for potential recertification, endorsements and professional development.*
