This course is designed to introduce potential future educators to the field of education. Students will be exposed to thematic curriculum that covers the history of education, educational theory, student learning styles, self-assessment, and classroom procedures. During the third marking period, students will perform field work in the middle school or high school in order to observe a selected content area, grade level, and styles of instruction. Teacher cadets will model professional behavior and dress while observing and teaching during the fieldwork experience. The student may be eligible to receive college credit through Kean University accompanied by a 3 credit course tuition fee. Please see requirements for concurrent college credits for additional information.
