Teaching Interns Gather on Campus

Approximately 65 teaching interns from the Arkansas Tech University College of Education returned to campus on Thursday, Oct. 11, for a full day of professional development activities.

Approximately 65 teaching interns from the Arkansas Tech University College of Education returned to campus on Thursday, Oct. 11, for a full day of professional development activities.

The interns, who are working in area school districts this fall as part of their graduation requirements, were divided into two groups for Thursday's professional development opportunities.

Early childhood education majors spent the morning working with Maureen Harness from the Arkansas Department of Education Office of Teacher Quality. Harness presented a program entitled "Education in America: Yesterday, Tomorrow and Today" in Doc Bryan Student Services Building room 242.

Secondary and middle level education majors spent their Thursday morning meeting in Crabaugh Hall room 302 with Arkansas Tech faculty members from their disciplines. They engaged in table top discussions concerning a variety of topics in education.

The two groups switched places for the afternoon sessions, with the secondary and middle level education majors working with Harness and the early childhood education majors working with Tech faculty members from their discipline.

Interns from the Master of Arts in teaching program were also represented in both sessions.
