The course focuses on participants' on-going inquiry and reflection of field experiences. Participants will connect observed teaching practices, experiences of learners within the major components of the English curriculum, and the relationship and impact of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and high stakes testing preparation on the best practices.
