Your Profession

Course #:

EDRU 9003


3 semester hours of graduate credit from University of Massachusetts Global.



Course Description

While today’s teacher focuses on the needs of their students, they also must be aware of the bigger picture in education and how those issues being discussed are or will be impacting their students and their instruction. Education is now one of the more hot and emotional issues in the news each day.

In this class we will look at the major issues at both the local and national level. Participants will determine the top two issues at the local and at the national level that will impact their students as well as how it will impact their teaching. Armed with this knowledge, they will identify specific actions they can take to support these issues, help clarify the impact these issues are having or could have on their students or work in opposition to the issue.
