Events & Opportunities for School of Education Students
Check out Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) on April 5th, 2014. Click the link above for details! From the flyer:
"Project WET is an interactive, hands-on way to teach your students about water and all the issues that surround this valuable natural resource! Colorado frequently experiences a drought, so now is the time to learn and teach about water sources and use, properties and treatment, and to get WET doing water quality testing. At the end of the day you will receive the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide book with over 90 standards-based, integrated lesson plans written by teachers and natural resource professionals with background information and assessment ideas, as well as other great free materials! Superb resource for teachers and substitutes."

MSU Denver Critical Educators Reading Series
We will be reading and discussing "Racism without racists" by Eduardo Bonilla-Silva on February 20th, 2014 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm at Zook's Coffee Chop in NW Denver. Feel free to pass the information on to new faculty, students, staff, teachers in schools, administrators, and anyone else you think might be interested in discussing this book and this movie with us. Feel free to obtain the book from any bookstore or library of your choosing.
We'd love if you RSVP here but there is no obligation to do so.
EDU 3700 "Cultural and Field Experiences in Great Britain"
"Cultural and Field Experiences in Great Britain" happens every May, after finals. It is a three credit hour course. We pair a student with a teacher at Prior Weston Primary for a week, then go on a cultural trip for a week. Prior Weston was given a citation by the Queen for being one of the 2 best primary schools in London. It is truly a chance of a lifetime! MSU Denver Teacher Education students receive email about this opportunity early in the Spring smeester. Contact Dr. Peg Fraser for more information.
