This course examines the approaches to parenting in our current culture. The styles of parenting in today’s culture are more abstract and permissive regarding limits and discipline. These behaviors are manifested by students whose misbehaviors are modeled and protected by parents. The family dynamics in society are very different then previous generations. Social attitudes regarding values and children along with overprotective parenting are issues in schools and classrooms. Ways of addressing these complex social and family dynamics are presented. Educators will develop a written application essay on these issues and/or lesson/unit plan and a research review.
Teacher’s Learning Center (TLC) has been offering graduate courses for teachers for over 9 years (through Colorado State University at Pueblo & previously North Dakota State University).
The founder and head instructor, Joseph C’de Baca M.Ed. began holding the classes on location in the Denver-metro area. Mr. C’de Baca has 15 consecutive years of full time classroom teaching experience in Denver Public Schools. He began TLC by offering his own originally created courses on the topics of Hispanic students and issues.
Over the past 9 years the courses have been transitioned into independent-study correspondence format. Additionally, the course offerings have since expanded to include other practical and relevant topics for the modern classroom.
K12 teachers nation-wide earn post-baccalaureate professional development credit from TLC's accrediting sponsor Universities. TLC courses have been taken by K12 educators in all 50 states, and also other territories such as Guam and US Military bases overseas.
