EDU 511 - Reflective Seminar: Teacher of Elementary Education


This seminar, which consists of weekly sessions, is taken concurrently with EDU 510 Practicum Experience. The seminar discussions build participants’ reflective capacities as they integrate knowledge of elementary level students, assessment, and curriculum into effective pedagogies. It provides a forum for introspection, professional dialogue, and collaborative problem solving. The specific course outline is jointly created by students and the faculty in response to students’ needs and their work in the field. Each student is required to complete a multi-faceted study that combines methodologies, theories, and current research about teaching and learning based on his/her practicum experience. The assessment of the student is based on the Massachusetts Department of Education Professional Standards for Teachers.
