EDD 634 Teaching In America: The Lives Of Teachers (Effective Fall 2011)
3 Lecture Hours; 1 Conference Hour; 4 Credits
What has teaching been like for teachers over the last century? What have they thought and felt about their work? And how can understanding the historical experiences of teachers help you in becoming a teacher? This course examines such questions through a variety of artifacts, including primary documents, literature, and film; as often as possible, it highlights teachers' voices through their diaries, letters, and oral histories. In addition to developing knowledge about the lives and work of teachers, students will deepen their abilities to examine historical texts, to synthesize a variety of evidence, and to produce a credible argument about the past.
