Course Catalog | Secondary Education

 

Since 2015, History faculty have adjusted a number of courses to better integrate students' use of technology into course assessments. For example, a media project is used in HIST 2254. Further, HIST 1101 includes an assignment that asks students to create a 3-D printed artifact based on images examined in class. Additionally, some courses are offered fully online to accommodate geographic dispersed students (e.g., HIST 2255). 

 

Courses have also been revised so that some now require students to complete authentic assessments, such as primary source analyses, cooking using historic recipes, and site visits to local historical and/or cultural sites. 

 

History courses continue to offer pre-service teachers opportunities to learn about diverse cultures and people, focusing on their contributions to history and society. 

Performance Evidence - Portfolio Guide

The teacher education program must ensure candidates are prepared to meet the Idaho Standards for Initial Certification of Professional School Personnel. Included in these standards are the Idaho Core Teaching Standards which all teachers must meet and specific foundation or enhancement standards specific to the discipline area the candidate is seeking endorsement.

 

Portfolio Guide

To show evidence of these standards, candidates will upload scored work into their Teacher Education e-portfolio. To facilitate this, each faculty member is requested to remind teacher education candidates in their course to retain evaluated work and upload it into their e-portfolio. The following one-page document can be distributed to teacher education candidates as needed.
