I have been a student for many years and ED 100 helped change my perspective from a student to a teacher. It's interesting to look at education from both points of view. My field placement was in a 1st grade classroom. Upper elementary interests me because I would like to teach grades with more content. From The College of Wooster Course Catalog. EDUC 100. This is a survey course that addresses a variety of topics that include: history of education; diversity of learn- ers; societal changes; educational philosophy; instructional technology; school organization; family and community involvement; cultural diversity; differentiation; lesson planning; and professional development. The course includes a 60-hour supervised field placement in the appropriate content area in a local school.
Introduction to Mathematical Biology helped inspire and peek my interest in the environment. I want to learn as much as possible in order to teach others and help save the earth for future generations. This class helped lead me into taking an environmental class next semester. From The College of Wooster Course Catalog. Mathematics and biology are related in unappreciated ways, and an exploration of the interconnection between these two disciplines provides several fascinating topics of study. Several contemporary biological issues, chosen by the instructors, will be examined in detail. For each biological process, mathematics will be used to predict the potential associated outcomes. No particular science or math background is assumed, so this course is suitable for non-majors.
CSD opened up my eyes to a new field in education. Working one-on-one with students in order to improve their speech or listening abilities is wonderful and unique. This class introduced me to the many complex disorders there are in the world. This profession would allow me to work with people in a wide age range. From The College of Wooster Course Catalog. COMM141 At the completion of this course, the student will possess a knowledge of a host of speech, language, and hear- ing disorders (including stuttering, voice, developmental language, aphasia, other neurogenic disorders, articulation/phonology, cleft palate, and hearing disorders). The study of speech-language pathology and audi- ology and the nature of the clinical practices of these professions will also be addressed.
CEIP was a wonderful internship program offered at my high school. I was one of five students in the class and I completed internships at three different locations. I was able to internship in a Kindergarten classroom, Special Education Pre-School classroom, 4th grade class and a multi-level 3rd/4th grade classroom for about three months each. This opportunity helped me explore different levels and abilities in education. CEIP- Career Exploration Internship Program- this is a non-paid, experiential-based learning environment designed to assist students with understanding the linkages between school and work. The students will explore up to four different occupations for a total of 108 hours of internship experience. This will provide the students the opportunity to obtain first-hand understanding and appreciation of the knowledge, skill, and education requirements necessary for various occupations. Most of these students will choose to attend a college to obtain the necessary educational requirements needed for their chosen occupational field.
My 10th grade Biology class sparked my interest in teaching science. I had always seen myself as an elementary teacher since I enjoy young children. However, I enjoyed the hands on learning experience and the adult relationship with my teacher. I started to see the different between a motherly elementary teacher figure and a role model high school teacher. This class was designed to be very student centered. It was hands on since there were many required NYS labs. Students had the ability to help create parts of the curriculum. Students took the New York State Living Environment Regents at the end of the course.
