EDCI 62111 Ecology of Teaching

Beginning education students are introduced to the systemic relationships in which they develop as social and cultural beings. Through intentionally designed field experiences, students are oriented to the field of education and guided to examine the direct and indirect influences that impact teaching and learning. These influences include but are not limited to immediate family, interactions between school, home and community, federal and regional mandates and laws, as well as cultural and generational beliefs. This course requires 5 hours of field work in placement assigned by the instructor.
