ED 102 Foundations of Education (WI)

An introductory course for prospective teachers that provides a broad intellectual structure for understanding the nature of the school as a social institution, the teaching profession as a potential career, and themselves as prospective teachers. Students will explore: 1) a variety of social, political, economic, legal, and philosophical variables that have made the American public school what it is today, 2) the connections between historical and contemporary educational issues, and 3) the potential impact of their own temperaments, talents, and motivations, upon their satisfaction and effectiveness as teachers. Students will be introduced to the conceptual framework and the assessment process that guides the teacher education program at Carroll College. A twenty (20) hour field experience in a public school classroom is required.
