Each Master's in Education program in Texas has a set of core courses that all graduate-level students must complete. These courses give students a strong knowledge base in the field of education. You may take a course like Foundations of Education, which examines education's role in society and how society may influence the field of education. Integrating Technology in the Classroom is another commonly-required course, as teachers must be able to skillfully integrate all different types of technology in the education of their students. You may take a class similar to Assessment in Curriculum and Instruction, which looks at assessment in two ways. This course may teach you how to formally assess students at set points within each lesson and how to informally assess students by observing their work and mannerisms.
