    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's important for future teachers to learn about the psychology of children, since how the brain works and how they think is such a huge part in helping them learn and grow.

    Course highlights:

    My teacher didn't give a lot of homework, but had in class activities to do, which helped the information stick better.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up and participate, pay attention and talk during discussions. You won't learn anything just by sitting there.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    When I started the class, I thought it was just another semi-interesting Psychology class. However, that was until Dr. Pagnani made us do ice breakers. He taught the entire class in a more hands-on way. Each student that was in the education courses had use of an iPad. He also offered the notes on-screen and on Blackboard, and, based on his experiences as a teacher, he changed what the students needed to write down from the notes and added small pieces of advice that ring true to a lot of students. My favorite projects in his class were the podcast (which I'd never done one of before, so it was a lot of fun), and the video about student diversity. He has some really helpful feedback that helps us all to shape ourselves, and he doesn't have much homework outside of tests, projects, and required readings.

    Course highlights:

    I learned much about how to be a teacher and the different routes I can take, depending on which set of ideals I hold to be true. I also learned about how to cater to students from different backgrounds or those who come from different social class. One of the most impactful things I learned had to do with discovering myself as a teacher, and discovering the wide range of places that I can go to teach, should I be accepted into a position.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't blow it off. It may seem easy, but it's really interesting. He's an understanding Professor, but don't take advantage of his easy-going manner and flexibility if you aren't going to participate. Be expected to participate in class discussions, but don't expect a lot of homework. That said, keep an eye on deadlines. Ther projects and papers are what you are graded on outside of tests. Keep in mind when they are due.
