Why was this course your focus?

“I revised PSED 420/520 Seminar 1 for secondary education. This is the first methods course for the secondary education major, and the first education course that I teach for pre-service teachers. The students are enthusiastic about their steps, but they are nervous and moldable! However, I often have 2% – 4% pre-service teachers of color. Our representation is far less than elementary, and less than our doctoral program (40%).”
