EDUC 656 - Critical Issues in Education


3 hours
Issues of critical importance to teachers make the news almost every day. Teachers must work collaboratively in recognizing the issue(s) that impact teaching and learning, what foundational causes are present, and the solution(s) to restore the order of the educational environment. Understanding the arguments, pro and con, that drive these issues is part of what it means to be a professional educator today. This course is designed to assist CIED candidates in identifying issues in schools, researching the cause or causes, and developing possible solutions using the Approach to Critical Issue Solving. The candidates will also explore the concept of change and being a change-agent in the school. GR
