Teaching as a Profession

Our primary goal in Teaching as a Profession is that each student explore what the teaching profession entails. This includes examining and practicing education learning theory, equity, classroom management strategies, lesson planning, instructional strategies, and assessment. 

To accomplish this goal, students will participate in Project Based Learning, elementary and junior high classroom experiences, field trips, and course work. Additionally, students will investigate a myriad of educational careers through guest speakers.

This course is designed to introduce students to the role and positive influence of an effective educator. Students will explore various careers in education and develop employability skills to become a successful professional. Students will understand the value of multiculturalism and diversity in the classroom and how it enhances individual student learning. Students will identify instructional strategies and understand the role of technology and feedback in student engagement.
