ENGAGEMENT IN EDSE 150
Page Created by Alyssa V. Huckaby
What does this mean?
Candidates examine current educational issues from multiple perspectives. They are encouraged to locate their personal experiences within the educational landscape to begin to develop a critical professional voice. Through assigned readings, course activities, and required field observations, candidates explore the dynamic relationship of teaching and learning in contemporary classrooms (Rodgers, 2015).

Diversity in the Field
Candidates will be observing multiple classrooms. While observing, candidates should be actively listening and participating when necessary. Candidates must understand that not every student is the same. We must incorporate all students and make sure we maintain equal relationships with each student.
Each candidate has the same goal: to become an excellent secondary education teacher. Maintaining that goal means that we all must participate in class, actively listen to each other, and continue to work on ourselves through assignments, readings, and in-class work.
Be Opinionated, Be Curious, Be Yourself
Candidates must realize that being actively involved during and outside of class time is extremely vital. Be willing to share your ideas, but understand others' ideas, research anything that comes to your mind related to class, and enjoy being who you are as a teacher.
