Castleton University

Description

Castleton's Education Program promotes four central tenets: inquiry and critical thinking, praxis between theory and practice, reflective and research-based methodology, as well as collaboration and social justice. We believe these pillars support future teachers in the public sector as educational advocates in both local communities and the world at large. Courses in Secondary Education Licensure Program focus on understanding the world of teaching and learning and developing the skills necessary to enter that world successfully. Op­portunities to engage in the field occur early in the student's educa­tional career and continue throughout the program. In early courses, students gain an understanding of pedagogical theory and practice. The later part of the program is devoted to honing pedagogical content knowledge through extended learning opportunities in schools. The final semester is devoted to a full-time student teaching experience. Along the way, civic engagement initiatives keep prospective teach­ers connected in authentic ways. Throughout the program, students capture their learning in an electronic Portfolio that allows them to record and assess their progress toward the goal of achiev­ing teacher licensure.
