This course addresses curriculum and assessment topics in a general context, but also addresses Core Curriculum components and initiatives in Saskatchewan and their relevance in Practical and Applied Arts (PAA). The professional growth process will be a foundational process for the structure of this class. Teacher candidates will reflect on philosophy, inquire into curriculum, and use teacher networking as the core strategies for personal/professional growth in this class. Emphasis will also be on the development of teacher-competence in designing, developing, and applying materials that can be used to facilitate individual as well as group learning. The course will help teacher candidates understand the assessment and evaluation processes as an integral part of the teaching process and the actualization of Core Curriculum. Examples of innovative curriculum and initiatives in work based learning in PAA will be introduced. Students will develop abilities in preparing and selecting learning aids as well as developing competency in creating, using, and evaluating tools for the assessment and evaluation for Practical and Applied Arts.

Permission of the department is required.
Note: Students with credit for ECUR 234 or ECUR 335 will not receive credit for this course.
