The Division of Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies will enhance the knowledge base of professional educators wanting to teach in the PK-12 classrooms.

The curriculum allows students to engage in conversations about important issues related to teaching and learning and to enhance their understanding of educational practice.

We seek to guide our teacher candidates in the growth of these areas:

  • Commitment to all students and their learning
  • Subject area content knowledge
  • Pedagogical content knowledge
  • Making content meaningful to learners
  • Managing and monitoring student learning
  • Systematic reflection and professional growth
  • Participation in learning communities
