1 Education 05:300:200:01 Introduction to Education Instructor:  Eloiza Jorge e-mail:  prof.elojorge@gmail.com 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.
