The focus of reading and discussion will include classroom management, lesson planning, developmentally appropriate practices, and the future of education in the 21st century, among other areas of interest. Students will also learn about teaching programs in colleges and opportunities for teaching in a variety of settings. Surfing teacher and educational Websites, engaging in conversations with educator-including those from public, private, and parochial schools, as well as from institutions of higher education-and visiting classrooms and schools in the area will further facilitate a clear and connected understanding of the teaching profession.
