    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a great introductory to the field of education. Within weeks you are placed in a classroom to determine if education is really meant for you. I loved my lab placement in this course and would highly recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was without a doubt my lab placement. I loved getting to experience the classroom form the perspective of a teacher so early in my college career. I learned what it meant to teach and to be responsible for those around me. IT was amazing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really focus on the outcome of the course. It will be challenging at times only because the professor is testing how much you really want to pursue a career in education. Focus on your goals, and remember that you were called to do this.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is mandatory for an education major. Not only that, but in your first semester as an education major you are already getting to experience the joys of the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely the classroom experience. Once a week I got to remember what i was working towards, and I learned what it is really like to be in the classroom.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give the course some time. Remember that this is the first step to the rest of your career, and the things you learn have value. Pay attention in class. Put the extra effort into your projects, and study the materials every night in the week leading up to exams. You'll do great!

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for Ed majors, but is is far from ideal. Dr. Abebe used fear and humiliation to teach. The course load, however is not hard, and I did learn a lot about education. The best part of the class is the teacher observations.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the class was observing a local teacher. I realized teaching was not simply a fall back but is part of my passion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready for Dr Abebe's personality. He will not always make sense. Bring him coffee with cream and sugar or listen really well to get on his good side.
