Senior Alex DeLong and Rozann Cedarholm

Bethany College students interviewed senior citizens for their class project in Foundations of Education, taught by Assistant Professor Gretchen Norland. The class focuses on the development of education and how it has been influenced by the values and beliefs of society over hundreds of years. This project gives the Bethany education majors a wonderful opportunity to hear stories of teaching experiences and to glean wisdom and advice from these retired teachers.

Students met with their senior partners for one informal session to get acquainted and then recorded their second meeting when they asked questions about education and teaching.

Special thanks to Rozann Cedarholm for generating the teacher list and ideas for meeting arrangements.

Museum Educational Artifacts

Bethany College students toured the Old Mill Museum, researched archives, and documented images of artifacts and the one-room schoolhouse for their class project in Foundations of Education, taught by Assistant Professor Gretchen Norland. The class focuses on the development of education and how it has been influenced by the values and beliefs of society over hundreds of years.
