EDU 512 - Fieldwork in an Urban Community


Prerequisites: None
This course introduces candidates to the foundational skills of reflective practice by combining four weeks of intensive fieldwork in an urban community with weekly seminar meetings. The seminar provides a framework and the philosophical underpinnings for students to make meaning of their interactions with children. Students will observe and work with elementary-aged students individually as well as in small and large groups. Readings and seminar discussions will focus on such topics as teacher identity, learning environments, equity in the classroom, second language acquisition, student/teacher relationships, and the connections between language and culture. Students will share their thinking, practice, and learning outcomes in a culminating presentation. The course will be co-taught by Gordon and Roger Williams University faculty members.
