2) PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES (PSLOs): The student will be able to:

1. Task analyze FSM and State curriculum standards and benchmarks and develop lesson plans that align with the benchmarks, include strategies for differentiation of learning, integrate two or more subject areas, and link the concepts to the students' environment.

2. Deliver lessons using a variety of teaching approaches, including development of materials and application of technology, to meet the differentiated needs of FSM elementary school students including students with special needs.

3. Assess and evaluate student learning at both the formative and summative levels.

4. Organize and manage an elementary classroom environment for learning.

5. Demonstrate professionalism.

3) COURSE STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES (CSLOs) (General): The student will be able to:

1. Compare and contrast psychosocial, cognitive, and moral theories of development and summarize ways to apply understanding of each to improve teaching and learning in an FSM classroom.

2. Compare and contrast behavioral, information processing, social cognitive, and constructivist theories of learning and summarize ways to apply understanding of each to improve teaching and learning in an FSM classroom.

3. Compare and contrast behavioral, social cognitive, and humanistic views of student motivation

and summarize ways to apply understanding of each to improve teaching and learning in

an FSM classroom.

4. Compare and contrast definitions of intelligence and summarize ways to apply understanding of

each to improve teaching and learning in an FSM classroom.

5. Develop measurable instructional objectives at each level of Bloom's Taxonomy of the

Cognitive Domain and task analyze FSM and State Curriculum Standards and Benchmarks in a

variety of subjects.

6. Differentiate formative and summative assessment; criterion-referenced, norm-referenced, and

standards-based tests; test reliability and validity; and various types of standardized test scores
