This course is designed for beginning teachers in their first, second or third year of teaching and will examine contemporary educational problems by studying them from the perspectives of history, philosophy, sociology, and psychology. The course will outline the four domains of teaching responsibility: planning and preparation, the classroom environment, instruction, and professional responsibilities. Teachers will engage in thoughtful conversations that promote student learning, evidence-based reflection of instructional practice, and professional inquiry as a means for teacher growth.
