Class Structure:
In Class: On campus, we will meet for two three- hour class sessions before the beginning of the summer semester (May 17 & May 19). We will also meet for two half- day class sessions after the two week field placement (June 8 & June 10). In- class activities will include small and large group discussion, presentations and individual work. All assignments will be due the last day of class (June 7) unless otherwise assigned.

Field Placement: In between these class sessions, you will spend two weeks at Huntington school in Syracuse (May 25 – June 4, 2010). We will also meet for two one-hour sessions during each week in Huntington (TBA).

You are expected to attend an orientation meeting at the school and to attend school during regular school hours, meet with teachers, administrators and your classmates after school hours. During the school day, you will be assigned to work with one teacher, but you will have the opportunity to visit other groups of students/teachers throughout the day. Keep a Learning Context reflection log of your experience.

Outside of Class: You are expected to spend a significant amount of time reading, writing, discussing with classmates, preparing assignments and developing a final project.

Sign up for this class will take place at the organizational meeting.
