Course Memo

Prerequisite: None. Study of the foundations of education, effective teaching, schools and students, and the fascinating challenges that teachers face in their classroom. The course is designed to help a student answer the question, “Should I become a teacher?” Students will participate in a minimum of four documented observations of interactions between learners and practitioners at work. Observations in a classroom require a fingerprint criminal background check. The fee for this background check is a separate fee, and paid by the student, per state law. Fees may vary annually based on agency charges.
