Who would decide what moves to test? Some would be proposed by established authors and thinkers in the teaching field. Some would come from the nation’s 3 million schoolteachers, possibly with crowd sourcing to identify the most-promising ideas. Some would come from academic researchers, particularly those from other fields, like psychology, who may offer unusual insights. But for the next level, testing competing ideas, I’d suggest we draw heavily on teacher opinion, particularly a group of teachers selected for their stated willingness to try new methods (if they are supported by research).
Lander also offers secondary certification (grades 9-12) in the following areas: English, Mathematics, and Social Studies. K-12 areas offered include Art, Music, and Physical Education. If you choose one of these routes, you'll pursue a degree in the specific subject area you want to teach, but your curriculum will include education courses and a full semester of clinical practice (student teaching). You'll be assigned an adviser from the Department of Teacher Education, as well as from your major area, to ensure you meet graduation and certification requirements.
