Anonymous's picture

In keeping with the College of Education's overarching focus on the theme of "learning community," our faculty strive to transcend traditional rote forms of learning and model a more collaborative, interactive and intellectually challenging pedagogy, which holds true to the richness and rigor of the academic disciplines they represent. As a teacher candidate, you will experience and participate in just such learning environments within your Subject-Matter Education classes at Rowan. Through this experience, you will develop the commitment, confidence and ability to go into the field. You will be prepared to create K-12 classroom environments in which students work actively with their teachers and with each other to investigate important and meaningful ideas in a given academic discipline.
