Research-based Interventions in the Classroom
Students analyze educational psychology theories and create evidence- based practices pertinent to improving K-12 pupil academic, interpersonal, and career success. Students analyze contemporary evidence-based theories pertinent to developing basic skills, creating the school-wide climate for fostering success, and effectively transferring academic success to on-the-job settings.
