ScotsCast: Practical Experience

Dr. Jim Drexler, Chair of the Education Department
Dr. Drexler discusses the practical experience that education students receive at Covenant, including the introduction to teaching course, made up partly of 30 hours of classroom observation and teaching.

"My favorite class so far has definitely been T.I.P.S. (Teaching In a Pluralistic Society)...It was such a hard semester enduring the readings, projects, and papers for that class, but through homework, the lectures, and the challenging discussions, I learned so much about how to be diversity-minded while teaching. Though the class is focused on educating children, the topics that were raised really encouraged me to broaden my worldview and place aside hidden biases within myself. "
