Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education — Seeking Final Approval
Proposed program would provide latest training
The best way to learn how to teach is to…get into the classroom! Colorado Mountain College is seeking final approval for a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. The proposed program would place CMC students in elementary classrooms from the start. So as they take college coursework, they would also learn alongside veteran teachers.
Why is this important? Many college students don’t get into the classroom until later in their program, giving them few chances to develop classroom skills. By getting experience during all four years CMC students could develop skills that could help them be successful in their first year of teaching. And by getting into the classroom right away, students could also decide early on whether teaching is the career for them.
Colorado Mountain College designed this proposed degree in Elementary Education to be based on innovative techniques and approaches from the best of education research. As a result, it blends the latest theories with classroom experience and Cultural and Linguistic Diversity (CLD) training. It’s a combination that we believe will make graduates very employable.
