EDHD 5000 Cultures, Schools and Communities is an original re-formulation of two teacher education courses that address the sociocultural foundations of teaching. The course co-instructors are Professor Peter Demerath and Professor Michael Goh who redesigned the course with input from CEHD faculty and staff, school partners, community members, and students.

EDHD 5000 is spread out over three semesters: EDHD 5000 in the Summer of 2012, EDHD 5010 in the Fall of 2012, and EDHD 5020 in the Spring of 2013. Class meetings will alternate with meetings of professional learning communities (PLC) that comprise students from different subject areas and complemented with field assignments and professional rotations.
We are looking for 8-12 energetic, creative, and skilled graduate teaching assistants for the inaugural roll out of the course. In order to be eligible, you must be available for all three EDHD 5000 segments and the accompanying PLC meetings from June 2012 to March 2013. Applications from qualified graduate students from ALL CEHD departments and programs are welcome.
