A Secondary Education Methods class invited Orange High School Students to spend the day at Seton Hall on November 26. The students were taken on a tour of the campus, met with financial aid officers, and engaged in lessons taught by Ed Studies students on genocide throughout history and the rise of Hitler. This Ed Studies class has also been involved with Orange Elementary students, working on a digital reading project.
This is the last course prior to student teaching for the Ed Studies students. The students have completed their second sixty hour field experience during this course. This was done in high schools and middle schools where they taught large group classes, worked with small groups, and assisted individual learners. Prior to these field placements they were involved in a year long tutoring program where they worked once a week with middle school students helping them prepare for NJAsk, providing homework help and organizational assistance. The class also facilitated at the NJ State We the People; The Citizen and the Constitution State Finals held at Rutgers University last February. They also served as electronic mentors to several classes working on Project Citizen activities at an area middle school . The students worked with Teacher Education History majors at the Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University in Ukraine both in planning and teaching lessons electronically.
The students included: Genocide Lesson- Paige Herriot, Krystal Turner, Tony Rodriguez, Angela Digioia; Holocaust lesson-Rich Savner, Kate Hudson, Aidan Finger, Joel Griffieth, and Shane Rowan.
