the Secondary Education in Cambridge program provides an opportunity for pre-service teachers from Mason to immerse themselves in a secondary teaching and learning in an international setting. The two week-long experience, situated in a secondary school in Cambridge, England, will provide Mason pre-service teachers with an opportunity to consider their instructional skills and develop an understanding of secondary education traditions by observing host teachers in their subject areas at the school site. Students will spend Mon-Thurs of each week in classrooms and on relevant field trips each Friday. There will be five two hour-long seminars — two in Fairfax prior to leaving for Cambridge, two in Cambridge, and one after returning from Cambridge.
