EDUC 200 - Foundations of Education (3)


This course examines the relationship between the school as a social institution and the larger society through a combination of philosophical, historical, and problem-oriented inquiry into that relationship.  The assumption is that a teacher who has developed an understanding of the vital relationships between school and society is in a position to see his or her professional roles beyond the narrow confines of the classroom, and will emerge a more sensitive, responsive, and effective teacher.  The course includes substantial reading and writing components amd a field experience with an at-risk population.

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 100R - Reading Essentials (3)  or placement, ENGL 101 - ~Written English (3) , and EDUC 150 - Seminar in Education (1)
