Klo Phillippi and Kristine Schutz on "Embedding Instructional Methods Courses in K-12 Schools" on March 24, 2010

On Wednesday, March 24, 2010, Klo Phillippi, lecturer in the teacher education program, and Kristine Schutz, graduate student research assistant, will give the second presentation in the Teacher Education Initiative’s new working colloquia series (dubbed “salons”). Their presentation is entitled “Embedding Instructional Methods Courses in K-12 Schools” and it will take place in the Tribute Room (1322), from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

The purpose of these “salons” is to provide an opportunity for all members of the SOE community, but particularly those involved with the Teacher Education Initiative (TEI), to learn about each other’s work; to foster closer connections among TEI-related projects; and to provoke new ideas that will help us design curricula and tools for effective, practice-focused teacher education. Each colloquium will be designed to maximize opportunities for participation and discussion among everyone present. The 2009-2010 series is focused on clinical settings and activities for teacher education. Magdalene Lampert, Hala Ghousseini, and Heather Beasley gave the kick-off presentation in the series last December.

I really hope that you will be able to join us for this special event. Klo and Kristine have been working for more than a year to design and teach early literacy methods courses in local elementary schools, and their presentation will highlight the challenges and opportunities of embedded methods courses in teacher education. Please let Patty Cartwright know if you plan to attend by the end of the day on Monday, March 22, so that we can plan the refreshments.
