Inquiries Into Teaching & Learning III

Introduces graduate level preservice teachers to the complexities of teaching by exploring four major themes -- learning, knowledge and knowing, teachers and teaching, schools and schooling. Each theme is investigated by analyzing issues of the learner's autobiography, the challenges of diversity, the power of collaboration, and uses of reflection. Students read and respond to a range of relevant tests, engage in observation of an elementary or secondary school classroom, create a classroom portrait with a focus on a particular learner, and produce a learning portfolio.
