Prerequisite: PSY 101 or the equivalent. (Second semester/3 credits) 

The psychology of school learning will be explored. There will be an overview of theories of teaching, learning, behavioral management and related research including the philosophical assumptions underlying each, within the dynamics of context, class, race and gender issues; and an explanation of ways of knowing and the many ways that learners construct knowledge. Emphasis is placed on empirical findings and their implications for the process of schooling. (Open only to students enrolled in Phase I of the secondary teacher certification program.)
