The primary goal of the course is for students to become familiar with the field of cognition and instruction. You will read some historical readings to give you a perspective on the field and where it comes from, and also some current studies that exemplify how research in cognition has important implications for education. Because it is a core, survey course, you will not get an in-depth look at any one topic, but you should become familiar with major themes and researchers in the field.

The second goal of the course is for you to learn to critically read and discuss articles in the field of cognition and instruction. You will practice presenting empirical and theoretical articles, identifying important issues, and critically evaluating conclusions.

Course Requirements:

There will be a take-home midterm and final, each of which counts for 25% of the grade. Weekly ~1 page reaction papers will comprise 30% of the grade. Class participation and presentations will contribute the last 20% of the grade.
