In this course, students expand and develop their disciplinary expertise as a teacher. Students conduct an investigation in which they seek answers to a set of guiding questions focusing on content knowledge, by collecting, analyzing, sharing and reflecting on three types of subject-specific resources (primary, secondary, and experiential) to be used in their future work as classroom teachers. In addition, students read and discuss analyses of contemporary issues in education and situate their inquiry within the broader educational community. As an element of their electronic portfolio, students create an annotated online collection of content resources for teaching in their subject area.
