EDUC170G CG - Introduction to Public School Teaching

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Staff

Description: This course examines the foundations of teaching and learning in public schools from various perspectives. These include, but are not limited to, philosophy, psychology, sociology, anthropology, politics and economics. A primary aim of this course is to explore habitually unexamined attitudes and assumptions that bear on teaching practices in public schools. Another goal is to ground our readings and discussions in the realities of contemporary public school classrooms. The course requirements include 9 hours of public classroom observation.

Students interested in pre-college teaching should contact the Teacher Education Program at CGU to arrange for courses that will meet the requirements for a teaching credential in California.
