Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)
Educational systems are constantly faced with the question "What should students be taught?" Traditionally, the answer has been skills and concepts in basic subject areas used most often in life. Consequently, curricula center around facts about these subject areas, skills used by people in these areas, and concepts on which the subjects are based. New ways of presenting facts, skills, and concepts are continually being explored in the hope that students will internalize and apply them when the need arises. Student and parent involvement in the learning process, individualized instruction, high interest learning media, and various groupings of students in learning situations all have but one goal: the acquisition of facts, skills, and concepts by the student.
