    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class acted as the foundation for all other education classes. First introducing students to the basic concepts of education, the strengths and weaknesses within the current system, and asking for possible solutions, the class opened my eyes to the world of education. Not terribly hard, the class was one of much information.

    Course highlights:

    The class I took was structured as one of discussion. My teacher presented us with a current issue in the educational system, and we discussed the issue as a class, examining the causes for the issue and presenting plausible solutions. Discussing 'hot topics' in the world of education today such as technology, poverty, and inequality, we looked through the history of education, tracing its roots and present trajectory. I learned much about the life of education, and its somewhat crippled history. Knowing the history and the present issues in the education system created a desire in me to rise from my seat and work actively for the cause of bettering the education system, becoming not a teacher who resigns passively to issues but who actively pursues solutions.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Instead of treating this class as a requirement and idly attending class, make a point to engage yourself in the issues and the concepts presented in class. This is your possible future career; engage and jump into its world, if you believe that this is the career for you.

    Course Overview:

    He's a wonderful professor that knows the subject well and makes every class a lively, interactive discussion.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, you learn the why behind education. You learn the history, and the ultimate goal of the class is to ask yourself why you want to become a teacher. It challenges what you believe and has you think about tough issues in education.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come into the class with an open mind, and prepare for it to challenge what you may believe and your reasons for wanting to go into education. Joseph is the best by far.
