EDTP 630A, B, C The Practicing Professional (1, 1, 1)
This seminar, which takes place over three consecutive terms, frames the entire master's program within a context of reflective practice, as defined and supported by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). Teachers examine existing practice; work with new ideas; and plan, carry out, and share modifications to practice. The teacher-cadre meets occasionally to share experiences, discuss issues and readings, and view videotapes of their practice. The course also supports teachers' efforts to connect with their professional community, through its organizations, journals, and traditions.
