Class Details

In this seminar we will take a deep dive into several key topics in education. We will examine psychological research as well as a range of other materials (essays, film, recordings of children and personal experiences) to help answer a series of questions, including: Does the kind or quality of schooling have a measurable impact on children? How do you create curriculum? How does one conduct high quality classroom observations? What do good teachers have in common? What is the best way to help teachers get better at what they do? Can remote learning work well in K-12 settings?
The Class: Format: seminar; Students will meet in small groups with the professor. Each group will meet for a tutorial-like session once a week. We will use students' papers as a jumping off point for our discussions.
