Characteristics of effective teaching are examined, and you learn and practice reflection. As the first course in the MAED, Curriculum and Instruction, you are introduced to some of the core principles of the National Board of Teaching Standards by developing a work sample of teaching, a case study of a student, and an educational portfolio.
