Students taking Foundations of Education will develop an understanding of the history of education, studying how it’s evolved into its current structure. To do this, they will look at past and present issues in education, along with characteristics of the modern classroom, which allows the students to gather context necessary for becoming an effective teacher. Students will also examine the different responsibilities of today’s educators: both ethical and social. Finally, as a part of this pathway, students can apply to the Educators Rising student organization; this organization allows other future teachers to network and study the educational world of today.
