1 Education 05:300:200:01 Introduction to Education Instructor:  Eloiza Jorge e-mail:  [email protected] phone: 973-223-9983 Taking a multidisciplinary approach to the study of education, this course exam- ines educative practices in and outside of school contexts. We will focus on critic- al issues in U. S. education, including: the structures of schools and schooling,  theories of learning and teaching, students' experiences, teachers' experiences,  inequality, family and community relationships, and contemporary school reform  policies. We will make comparisons between learning and teaching in and out- side of school contexts.  A key component of this course is a field placement in  two different school sites This field placement involves 8 three-hour visits on Fri- day mornings.  In this course, you will draw upon your own experiences as  learners, your field observations, the readings and class discussions and activit- ies to develop an understanding of contemporary schooling, and equally import- antly, of education as a process that is at the heart of all human activity. Each  week is organized to consider educational issues from both a theoretical/research  perspective, and from the realities of educational practice in school and out of  school contexts. In addition, class will model various pedagogical strategies; and  these experiential exercises will provide for an examination of teaching and learn- ing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
