Welcome to Education 80/80L - part of the TPP STEM/CTE Grant at Cabrillo College. This website will assist you in accessing information you will need for Education 80 (part of the HASS Division), site placements, career counseling, and other services and opportunities provided by the TPP STEM/CTE grant and the Education Department at Cabrillo College.
Education 80 is a course that gives students the opportunity to explore teaching and pedagogy while participating in Community Service Learning at school sites throughout the county each semester. 

In Fall 2015, ED 80 was split into two components: a lecture course and a lab. The lecture course explores assumptions about teaching and learning by looking at educational history, philosophy, learning theory and curriculum and diversity issues in today’s classroom.  Students have a chance to consider what teaching tries to accomplish in a culturally and linguistically diverse world, and within the context of the education system in the United States.  In addition to the lecture course, ED 80L is a lab that includes a Community Service Learning component which requires students to explore and apply concepts from the lecture course. These courses can be taken concurrently or separately, depending on the needs of the student. 

For ED 80L, Service Learning Lab, students work in a classroom in a public school in the Santa Cruz area, during school hours. The Service Learning Lab requires that students be able to participate in the assigned classroom on a weekly basis. The ED 80L "Rules and Protocols" Tab on the left side provides more detailed information about the requirements for the lab.

PLEASE REFER TO THE CURRENT CLASS SCHEDULE for times and days that classes meet.
