Foundations & Secondary Education – Undergraduate


Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program

Bachelor of Arts in Education – Math Education Major Math (6-12) Concentration


Summary of the Changes:

As per BOG request, program faculty members are revising the Secondary Mathematics Education 6-12 program from 126 to 120 total credit hours. The changes are as follows:
1) MAE 4330 Special Methods: Secondary Mathematics (4 Credits) is changed from a 4 credit-hour to a 3 credit-hour course. This change aligns this course with other secondary methods courses regarding hours, given that no field assignment is connected to this course.
2) MAP2302(GM) Ordinary Differential Equations (3 Credits) replaces MAA4200(GM) Mathematical Analysis
 (4 Credits).
3) The POS introduce a section of "Informational Text" to strongly recommend students to take either MAP2302(GM) Ordinary Differential Equations (3 Credits) or MAC2313 (GM) Calculus III (4 Credits) as part of the lower level credit-hours to complete the program within a total 120 credit-hours
4) At the same time, the course bundle of MAC1105(GM) College Algebra (3 Credits) and MAC 1114(GM) Trigonometry (2 Credits) or their equivalent single-course replacement, MAC1147(GM) Precalculus, are Mathematics courses designated both to fulfill the Quantitative Reasoning requirements in General Education as well as the prerequisite courses for enrolling into MAC2311(GM) Calculus (4 Credits).
5) Minor language edits are made to improve the ease of reading.
As a result of these changes, not only the program will fulfill BOG’s request, the revised program prerequisites is better aligned with that of the Mathematics majors program. Since the teaching of Mathematics 6-12 requires a stronger foundation in mathematics content knowledge, the resulted alignment also reflects the program’s commitment to teachers’ mastery of content knowledge. Finally, elective options have been revised to ensure the program totals 120 hours to meet BOG requirements.

Log Number: 201501-44

Foundations & Secondary Education – Undergraduate


Change a degree-major of an existing program

Bachelor of Arts in Education – Physical Education Major


Summary of the Changes:
As per BOG request, program faculty members are revising the Physical Education Teacher Education program from 121 to 120 total hours. Additional revisions are proposed in order to align the program with: (a) the FDOE discipline-specific courses suggestion for physical education programs, (b) the FTC exam discipline –specific content knowledge, (c) the National Standards for Beginning Physical Education Teachers. The proposed changes are described bellow:
1. A statement will be added explaining that the number of Skill Development courses is contingent upon whether students take PET 2622 Care and Prevention of Sports Injuries (3 credits) or BSC 2086C – Human Anatomy and Physiology II (4 credits). This substitution is already stated in the program of studies but a statement of clarification was deemed necessary.
2. PEO 3106 – Fitness Education for Children and Adolescents (3 Credits) will change from a 3 credit hour to a 2 credit hour course. Since portions of the content delivered in this course are already covered in other courses (PET 3434 and PET 3820), reducing the course load will not affect students’ exposure to the content. In addition, the course prefix will change from PEO to PET because this is physical education theory course rather than a physical activity course. The course description will be listed as follow:
The course involves a study of developmentally appropriate methods used to teach health-related physical fitness principles to children and adolescents in schools and youth agencies.
1. PET 3641 Curriculum and methods in K-12 and Adapted Physical Education (3 Credits) will be titled Curriculum in K-12 Physical Education (3 Credits) and the course description will be revised (as indicated bellow) reflecting a focus on curriculum design and evaluation. The adapted physical education portion of the course will be delivered in a separate course, PET 4640 Adapted Physical Education (3 Credits). Combining curriculum and adapted physical education in one course results in superficial engagement with the content and lack of in-depth understanding of those important elements of the delivery of quality physical education. (See item # 3). The course description will be listed as follow:
This course involves a study of curriculum design in K-12 physical education. The course emphasizes national recommendations for standards-based curriculum development as well as the various curriculum models available for K-12 physical education.
2. PET 4640 - Adapted Physical Education (3 credits) will be added to the program as a required course. This course has been offered as an elective but current research provides evidence that physical educators need at least a 3 credit hours course and related field experiences focused on the delivery of physical education for students with special needs.
3. The Physical Education elective (choose one from PEL/PEN/PEO/PEP/PEQ/PEM/PET/HSC) (3 Credits) will be removed from the program because the major already includes all the discipline –specific courses required by the FDOE.
4. The Health Elective (3 Credits) will be removed from the program.
5. EDF 3151 Educational Psychology (3 Credits) will be added to the program in order to align the physical education major with the other secondary majors offered within the department and better prepare the majors for the FTC exam.
6. The Major Requirements will be changed from 31 to 26 credits.
7. TSL 4324 TESOL for Content Area Teacher (3 Credits) will be moved form Foundation to Core Requirements.
8. APK 33110C Physiology of Exercise will be moved from Foundations to Major Requirements.

Change an existing course

Fitness Education

PEO

Junior (3xxx)

106

PEO3106 "Fitness Education for Children and Adolescents" will change from a 3 credit hour to a 2 credit hour course. The rationale is that portions of the content delivered in this course are already covered in other courses "Teaching Movement to Children" PET3434 (3 credits) and "Teaching Sports Skills to Adolescents" PET3820 (3 credits). Reducing the course load will not affect students' exposure to the content. Also the course prefix will change from PEO3106 to PET3106, since this is a physical education theory course rather then a physical activity course.
New Course Description:

The course involves a study of developmentally appropriate methods used to teach health-related physical fitness principles to children and adolescents in schools and youth agencies.

PET3641 Curriculum and Methods in K-12 and Adapted Physical Education (3 Credits) will be titled Curriculum in K-12 Physical Education (3 Credits) and the course description will be revised (as indicated below), reflecting a focus on curriculum design and evaluation. The adapted physical education portion of the course will be delivered in a separate course, PET 4640 Adapted Physical Education (3 Credits). Combining curriculum and adapted physical education in one course results in superficial engagement with the content and lack of in-depth understanding of those important elements of the delivery of quality physical education.
New Course Description:

This course involves a study of curriculum design in K-12 physical education. The course emphasizes national recommendations for standards-based curriculum development as well as the various curriculum models available for K-12 physical education.

Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program

Bachelor of Arts in Education – Social Studies Education Major Social Studies (6-12) Concentration


Summary of the Changes:
As per BOG request, program faculty members are revising the Social Studies Education program from 123 to 120 total hours. As part of these revisions, Special Method: Social Studies SSE4384 will change from a 4 credit hour to a 3 credit hour course. This change aligns SSE4384 with other secondary methods courses regarding hours, given that no field assignment is connected to this course. American Economic History ECO3622 (3 credits) has been removed from the program as this course has not been offered in recent years by the Department of Economics and Geography. To remedy this situation and to reflect current program advising, both Principles of Macroeconomics ECO2013 (3 credits) and Principles of Microeconomics ECO2023 (3 credits) are now recommended within program prerequisites. The prerequisites have also been changed to include the option of Introduction to Psychology PSY2012 (3 credits) instead of selecting any PSY prefix 3 credit hour course. World History I WOH1012 (3credits) and World History II WOH1022 (3 credits) are now strongly encouraged in the prerequisites, providing the broad world history content necessary in both middle and high school social studies instruction. Finally, language related to social science electives within the major has been changed to provide clarity and to ensure the program equals 120 credit hours.

Special Method: Social Studies

SSE

Senior (4xxx)

384

SSE 4384 will change from a 4 credit hour to a 3 credit hour course. This change aligns SSE 4384 with other departmental secondary-level methods courses regarding course hours and is an appropriate change, given that no field assignment is connected to this course to justify the additional one credit hour.
New Course Description:

An examination of the instructional methods, materials, and curriculum for teaching secondary level social studies. Prerequisites: EDF 3945 (Field Lab 1) and EDG 3323 (The Learning Process).

Bachelor of Science - Sport Management Major Community Sport Concentration


Summary of the Changes:
We are creating a new minor in Community Sport and Tourism that we believe will be more beneficial for students wishing to pursue a career in this area. There were not many students choosing this concentration and we are confident that the new option for selecting the Community Sport and Tourism minor will be more attractive and will better provide students the content knowledge needed to work in this field of community sport and tourism.
