Content area domain and competencies


Working in higher education, you will often be asked to contribute to  new degree program creation or revision. To be able to understand this  process, you have started with learning about how to communicate and  collaborate in higher education, and you have also learned the roles of  the people involved in the curricular and programmatic development  process. Now, you will take that knowledge and begin to construct parts  of a mini degree program of your own.

Part 1: Domains and Competencies

First, you will need to choose a content area that has learning  standards and a specialized professional association. A standard area in  Science. Your next step will be to locate the most current standards  for initial licensure programs. Those standards cover the content of an  entire degree program in that area. You are only being asked to develop a  portion of a degree for this course, so please choose one standard.  Your standard may have several competencies underneath it. This is  typical.

Science Standard. 

Take the standard you have chosen and write one domain for your  program. Review the sample domains and competencies in the Resource  folder as a guide. Once you have finished writing the domain, develop  three to five competencies that students must master in order to achieve  the goal of that domain. In further topics, you will develop  activities, assessments, lesson plans, and syllabi to go with this  domain and its competencies.

Part 2: Reflection

In 150-250 words, reflect on the domain that you chose and how you  decided on the competencies aligned with it. Why did you chose the  particular standard from which to build?  How are you going to use this  in your future professional practice?

Submit a document with both the domain and the competencies on it.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
