ENGL-479-01 Reading, Teaching, Social Reflection
Fall for 2009-2010
Reading, Teaching and Social reflection is intended for students interested in teaching, and besides the usual classes, involves working for two hours one morning a week (the morning is chosen by the student) as a teacher's aide in one of three inner-city Catholic schools. These schools include Assumption School in Anacostia, Immaculate Conception School in Shaw, and Sacred Heart Bi-lingual School in Mount Pleasant, all of which have been welcoming Georgetown students for the past 13 years. The focus of the course is on teaching reading in the primary grades, and students from this class have gone on to Teach for America, the Inner-City-Teaching-Corps and to degree programs in Education at Berkeley, Columbia Teachers College and Harvard, among other places.
