University courses are closely linked to classroom experience so teacher candidates can explore theories and practices learned in their studies. Cohorts allow candidates to work together to complete the program. Teaching proficiencies that define what teachers should know and be able to do upon completion of the program are threaded through each course. Assessment of the proficiencies occurs through classroom activities, course assignments, teaching evaluations, and production of an edTPA. (program overview and FAQs)
