UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Teacher Education Program is approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction,and is a National Education Association (NEA) Exemplary Teacher Education Program.
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Teacher Education Programs are designed to develop self-reflective practitioners in the areas of early childhood, elementary, middle school, and secondary education. We serve both those seeking initial certification and practicing professionals, with a view towards helping them develop the pedagogical, content, and technological skills necessary to function effectively in and contribute positively to an ever-changing, diverse, and democratic society. Our intention is to work with our neighbors to promote richly satisfying, just, and sustainable relationships with the St. Croix Valley and the planet.
Teacher Education has a workshop series for sharing different teaching strategies that support general literacy and disciplinary understanding. Each workshop models engaging approaches intended to foster critical thinking and deep processing of complex material (hallmarks of "common core" literacy). Peer coaching stipends are available in conjunction with these workshops to support faculty who wish to apply a new strategy in their own classroom. For more information click here.
