TitleSt. Clare's Comparative Education

The course is broadly organized into four sections.  The first part provides an overview of the UK education system, the second a comparison of key themes in UK education, the third introduces relevant international comparisons and benchmarks, and the fourth is based around student contributions based on their US and UK experiences.  Throughout the course, the students will be asked to draw on their experience gained in UK classrooms.  They will also be provoked to take an active and critical position on the various reading tasks requested of them as these relate to their classroom experience.
