You will explore philosophical orientations to teaching, the structure of classrooms and schools, the purpose and function of curriculum, the role of the teacher in this context and begin the process of constructing your own philosophical statement of belief about learning and teaching. A key outcome of this course is the development of a professional teaching portfolio. Field experiences involving diverse school environments are a required component of this course.In order to ensure the safety of children in classrooms, local school jurisdictions require that student teachers submit a current Police Information Check with Vulnerable Sector Search as well as an Alberta Children's Services Intervention Record Check.
