Meeting #1 Definitions & Models/Theories

Please read only the articles assigned to you (your name is next to that assigned article in addition to the two articles assigned to everybody). We will be using the "fishbowl" method of class interaction. Thus, while it is good to have a basic familiarity with what is being covered in ALL of the readings, you are expected to know your specific assigned readings well enough that you can hold a class discussion of what the article is about and what it means. In this way, we minimize volume of readings per person, maximize class interaction, and cover a lot of material at the same time!

We are going to focus predominantly on the book by John Dewey entitled: "Experience and Education". UMD students can access this book on library reserve readings,in the CEED office OR - I HAVE SEVERAL COPIES THAT I CAN SIGN OUR OF MY OFFICE (see me to get them).

Readings: (Note - some of these are from the text books, others come from the readings packet. Since you are to be familiar with all of the material, I am expecting that you will find the articles easily enough.) You can get your text readings from the CEED office. The articles are available from my web site - or you can acquire them via google. Click on "Class Readings" to access them. You will need to use your umd i.d. and password to access them because they are copywrite protected.
