Please check out the Canvas site before each class. If you have an iPad, please bring it to class. Course Overview Professional Sequence for Teacher Education This course is part of what is called the "professional studies for teacher education." Teacher education faculty members from across the University work together to determine what future teachers need to know and how that knowledge can be provided in different classes. These courses are coordinated. The two educational psychology classes (this course and the learning, development, and assessment for teachers class) encourage you to develop knowledge of the different types of students you will encounter as a teacher from a psychological perspective. In this class, you will be presented with the general principles of motivation and classroom management, and how those principles relate to instruction. In your future education classes, you can expect to be held accountable for the ideas presented this semester (so hang onto those notes!!). Course Content The course will examine current motivation theories and perspectives on classroom management. We focus on their relevance to teaching and learning in school settings. The content of the course will be divided into two units. In the first unit we learn about motivation, which will be organized around Self Determination Theory. We will cover such topics as self-efficacy, attribution theory, and goal orientation. We will also discuss the importance of motivation to student learning and several approaches to increasing student motivation when there are problems. At the end of this portion of the unit we will discuss the socio-cultural factors that influence learning and teaching. In the second unit, we will focus on classroom management. We will examine different approaches to classroom management. The major goal of this portion of the unit is to help you develop management strategies that keep students engaged in learning and prevent problems from occurring. In addition, you will learn about tactics for dealing with classroom management problems when they occur. (CAEP Standards 1.1, Diversity; InTASC Standards 2, 3, 5, 7, 8) iPads As most of you know, most JRCoE students have been given iPads. Together, we will be learning how to use them. If you have one, please bring it to class. We will be using them in multiple ways and you can use them for taking notes in Notability. Finally, if you do not have an iPad, please borrow one from the JRCoE lab (second floor of Collings Hall) when I tell you we will be using them. Course Requirements and Grading Evaluation will be based on points earned on the following course requirements: 2 exams; a final; a Unit 1 Scenario Project and a Unit 2 paper; 2 research activities; and class participation. An explanation of each requirement follows. Two Examinations - 100 points total- There will be two examinations, one for each of the two units. The exams will be based on instructional objectives for each unit. Exams will be a mixture of objective (i.e., multiple-choice and matching), short answer, and essay items. Each unit exam will be worth 45 points. The final exam (2nd exam) will focus on the last unit, but it is still our final exam, will include information from both units, and will be taken during final’s week. Please read the university’s policy on final exams. Instructors cannot change the date of a final exam for a student without the dean’s approval. One Application paper – Motivating positive behaviors 75 total points- The paper will be an application of the class content related to both motivation (10 concepts) and classroom management (10 concepts). You will first describe your classroom environment including your rules, organization of the classroom, and how your classroom is designed to encourage positive engagement. This can be based on an actual observation of a classroom, an imagined classroom, or an elaboration of a scenario you saw in this class. Note that there needs to be enough detail for you to be able to analyze the situation. You will show motivation ideas are implemented in your classroom to encourage positive behaviors. For example, how does your design facilitates mastery goals, positive academic emotions, and principles of SDT. You will then describe and analyze a behavior challenge. It might be a single student or a group of students. You will create a behavior change intervention plan to address the classroom management challenge you are focusing on. See the information and directions on Canvas. There will be a rubric posted on our Canvas site for you to use. A 5 point introduction to your field experience that will be due a couple weeks before the final paper. You will discuss this introduction with a partner in class and help each other outline the remainder of your papers. See the schedule below for due dates of these two components. Research Activities - 10 points- Students have a choice of two types of research activities for this requirement. Students can participate in up to TWO studies that are taking place in the College of Education (5 points for each or one extensive study for 10). Students can summarize two related research articles. Think about what you might like to do, and then discuss your plan with your instructor before you begin. You will earn up to 10 points for this requirement. Class Attendance/Participation/Reading Assignments/Professional Demeanor - 30 points- This class has been designed such that a lot of learning will go on during class time. Therefore, attendance and active involvement are expected. Additionally, you are now in a professional education program and so you are expected to demonstrate the demeanor of a professional. By professional demeanor we mean coming to class prepared, participating in the activities and discussions, and treating others with respect in the classroom. Professional Demeanor also includes not playing on your device during class to the point that others are distracted. We are not going to make a big deal out of this during class, as that would be bad classroom management, but we will know who does this on this type of thing on a regular basis. It is distracting to the person teaching and that is why we know who does it. Attendance We also know that students cannot always attend class, however it is your responsibility to contact us when you are unable to attend AND your responsibility to get notes from other classmates. Please do not ask us if you missed anything. You missed class, so the answer will be yes. Find a buddy in the class to ask about what you missed. We will be happy to supply any handouts or explain concepts after you have read the notes from that day. Making arrangements prior to absences is preferred; however we recognize that emergencies do occur. Prompt notification following an emergency is expected. Extended absences (i.e., more than two classes) without documented cause and/or habitual inappropriate behavior in class will result in zero points. Clearly, some subjectivity goes into the assignment of these points--that is intentional. Our expectation is that most students will get most of these points. Assignments. Most classes will be based on readings and/or activities. To encourage you to prepare in advance we are going to ask you to complete short homework assignments that you will put on Canvas before class. Class will be more interesting and lively if students are prepared, so it should be a win-win situation. Also, points for those reading assignments that are to prepare you for class will not be given if you hand it in late – that misses the point of the assignment which is to have it read before class! Missing Exams and Late Assignments: Students are expected to take exams on the scheduled date and turn in all work on time. If something comes up that precludes attendance on an exam date or meeting a deadline, you must let the instructor know in advance of that class period. We will attempt to work out an arrangement for completion of the work. Unexcused absences from exams or unexcused late papers will result in zero (0) points. See note bolded above, too. Students with Disabilities: The following is the University's Reasonable Accommodation Policy: The University of Oklahoma is committed to providing reasonable accommodation for all students with disabilities. Students with disabilities who require accommodations in this course are requested to speak with the professor as early in the semester as possible. Students with disabilities must be registered with the Disability Resource Center prior to receiving accommodations in this course. The Center is located in Goddard Health Center, Suite 166, phone 405/325-3852 or TDD only 405/325-4173. Issues Related to Academic Dishonesty: Acts of academic dishonesty such as cheating and plagiarism will result in a zero on the assignment and the filing of either an admonition report or an academic misconduct charge (see http://integrity.ou.edu/students_guide.html for more details). According to The American Heritage Dictionary, Second College Edition to plagiarize is "to steal and use the ideas or writings of another as one's own" (p. 946). Please see your instructor if you are unclear about this definition. I also want to highlight at this point that academic misconduct, according to the OU standards includes “all other actions that may improperly affect the evaluation of a student’s academic performance or achievement.” This means that in all your classes you must be very clear with professors concerning what is acceptable collaboration versus cheating. Please be aware that the University of Oklahoma has purchased a plagiarism detection service called Turnitin.com. All professors and instructors are being encouraged to use it. Please note that recently the use of cell phone cameras in class has resulted in allegations of cheating. Please be careful to not use or play with your phone in class such that your intent might be construed as rude or worse (cheating). Assignment of Grades will be based on points earned Requirement Points: Two Unit exams 1 @ 50 2 @ 50 Paper – Apply motivation and Classroom Management 75 Research Activities 10 Attendance/Participation 30 ____ 215 ptsGrades in the course will be assigned on the following basis. A student who has earned 90% of the total possible will get an A. A student who has earned 80% of the 215 possible will get a B. A student who has earned 70% of that total will get a C. A student who has earned 60% of that total will get a D. And, a student who has earned less than 60% of the total will get an F. Please note that you have to hit the minimum number of points to get the grade. A = 193 – 215 C = 150 – 171 F = below 129 B = 172 – 192 D = 129 – 159 PLEASE NOTE THAT SNOW DAYS, OR OTHER INCLEMENT WEATHER DAYS, WILL BE ONLINE DAYS. WE HAVE ENOUGH MATERIAL ON CANVAS THAT WE DO NOT NEED TO LOSE DAYS See Schedule Below Class Schedule Fall 2017* EIPT 3483 *Subject to modest changes Below you will find the schedule for each class. In order to gain the most from a class, the “Readings” should be done before class and there will be a summary form on Canvas for many of the readings. You are expected to read all weekly readings before your Tuesday class. Reading assignments (summary form) will be due on Monday night 11:59pm. To reiterate, please post the reading assignments to Canvas by Monday 11:59pm (unless otherwise specified). For some readings, we are not asking for a summary, but the material will be used in class so we still want you to have read it. There will be points for the reading assignments and activities that will be part of the Class Attendance/Participation etc points. Bring copies of assigned readings, models or diagrams to class for discussion (you can have them ready on your iPads). Please note that sometimes what is labeled a “reading” is just an elaboration of some key points from the notes. If there is ambiguity about any assignment or what to bring to class, please ask me for clarification.
