This course provides introductory knowledge to the education system, educational reforms and various teaching styles. This course is prefect for active students. The professor keeps your interest with weekly presentations, thoughtful discussions and field work.
The highlight of this course was the required 10 hours observation field log. This assignment enabled me to observe teachers in a classroom setting. During this observation, I spoke with teachers and gained insight into the challenges of becoming and being a teacher.
