The Program in Social Studies recently redesigned student teaching seminars around five contexts of urban teaching:
- Educational policy
- Urban public school
- Local geographical and local sociocultural
- And children, classroom, and school
The fall seminar focused on the first four contexts; the spring seminar provides an in-depth examination of children, classroom, and school context.
The Program in Social Studies adheres to the belief that teaching always occurs within a series of nested contexts that shape teaching and learning. Our students are best able to prepare for teaching in a new situation with close and careful attention to the dynamic relationship of teaching and learning in context.
