Our overarching goal of the course is to help you develop basic working knowledge of the fundamental concepts associated with learning, motivation, human development, and assessment as they apply to teaching. To gain this understanding we must also explore the nature of the scientific process as it applies to the social sciences. To this end we will use a variety of experiences to explore a range of theories, research, and provide you with an opportunity to get in the field to apply this knowledge while working with children. This first step on your journey will require that you do more than simply memorize information, you must begin to think critically about how you can facilitate student learning.
