This course complements the second semester of Student Teaching (MTHED-GE 2922), providing students a professional community of practice for continued learning as their teaching responsibilities increase. The course will focus on specific aspects of planning & intended instruction, enacted teaching, & the impact of teaching. Students will develop practices of deliberate reflection & analysis of their teaching, making explicit connections between their knowledge of theory & practical experiences. There will be an additional focus on pressing local issues in education and education research at the various levels, and their impact on teaching and learning. Students will make sense of these issues & develop informed stances, demonstrating their emerging abilities to do so in connection with their coursework & student teaching experiences in a culminating project.
