Educators with a strong foundation in content knowledge are necessary for facilitating academic success aligned with state standards inside the classroom.
Ready2Teach candidates discover how to differentiate instruction throughout a class period to meet the needs of each type of learner in their classroom, involving every student in the process best suited for the way they receive information.
Having the unique ability to be immersed in the P-12 classroom for a full year, Ready2Teach candidates are given the opportunity to discover the elements of a positive learning environment within the classroom by partnering with mentoring teachers to determine the most effective way of facilitating learning and respectful interactions between both peers and instructors.
By building a foundation of content knowledge through the pre-residency years, and following it with the year-long clinical experience with a highly qualified mentor, teacher candidates will leave the Ready2Teach program with the experience and comprehension necessary to identify and meet the academic needs of each student within their future classroom.
Experience in the classroom for the full year allows teacher candidates to comprehend the role they play in the lives of their students. In order to successfully educate, they must first meet the basic needs of their learners. Spending a year in the classroom as a positive role model prepares each program participant to anticipate the level of care their own class will require.
