Course Summary

This course has been designed for the students to explore what it takes to be a teacher, not just in the classroom but in many fields—education, healthcare, or corporate. They will learn about the history, purposes, issues, ethics, laws and regulations, roles, and teaching qualifications. As they work through the course, they will participate in at least 20 hours of guided observations and field experience in different settings. This will help them identify what teaching career path interests and suits them best, as well as practical learning environments. They will also build a working portfolio throughout their program as they learn about leadership and skills opportunities offered in participating in CTSO activities.
