lockers-1622864_1920

This course serves as the gateway to the TEACH program, a 5-year BA/MA combined degree program offered through the College of Education and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

The course (TCH 320) is an invitation to secondary education as a profession, an opportunity for students considering education as a career to explore the reality of teaching and learning a disciplinary content area in a variety of Chicago-area schools. Students will become familiar with different narratives of teaching through teacher and student biographies, testimonials, literature, film, and classroom observations. They will explore the interrelationships between, for example, popular cultural beliefs about schooling; teacher and student identities; and classroom interaction. The instructor will coordinate observations in several classrooms as the basis for intensive, guided reflective work, aimed at supporting students’ initial and subsequent efforts of developing identities as disciplinary content educators (25 hours of high school classroom observation required). Course is also an introduction to the TEACH Program.

Winter 2018: Tuesday/Thursday 11:20-12:50
Also offered Spring 2018
