    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Yes, she's a great professor and a great course! Especially if you're going into the teaching profession.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned so much that I'm sure will be useful. For example, my philosophy of education, lesson plans, cooperative learning strategies, and using blooms taxonomy. And putting all of that into my portfolio for when I do begin looking for a teacher job.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have extra time in your schedule to do your student observation hours. And to start applying to school districts for student observation.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Well, for starters, it's required if you want to become a teacher. So really, you have no choice. But, don't fret, it's a great class. The professor is great and he also has a TA and she can help you also. I took this course online. So the class was taught online, but our observing hours were the same as if we attended the physical class at campus. It is a very informative and fun class. To me, anyway.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights would have to be the observing hours we must do. We have to have a minimum of 16 observing hours. We must apply to a school district of our choice to be a student observer. The school district will then assign you to a school and a teacher. After that process is complete, you start observing. You and the teacher will set up your times and you will go. You sit in the classroom and observe the teacher and the students. You have a log you must fill out and have the teacher sign, so your professor knows you're actually doing it. You also have an assignment called "journal entries" and it's a graph that has different hours (up to 16) and you answer different questions about the class, teacher, etc for each hour. You learn a lot about what it takes to be a teacher. If being a teacher is what you really want to do, it helps open your eyes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Again, it's required if you want to be a teacher. So, if you're on the edge and don't really know if teaching is what you want to do, this class will definitely help you decide. You learn a lot about what you'll be doing as a teacher, aside from teaching the class. You learn about the work you will have to put it and the dedication.
