Inquiries Into Teaching & Learning I

Inquiries I explores two themes: Learners and Learning and Teachers and Teaching. Students are introduced to teaching and learning by reconstructing, critiquing and sharing their own educational histories, and by reading and responding to the autobiographies and memoirs of learners and teachers of diverse backgrounds, needs, and experiences. The course focuses on way to promote and assess learning, support learners' interests, foster effective communication, honor diversity, create democratic learning environments, and enable teachers to fulfill their responsibility to self, others, school and community. By applying relevant professional literature to their micro teaching and their observations in school settings, students examine how the classroom context shapes the acquisition of knowledge, attitudes, and skills.
