Help launch a new graduate school of education!
The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is an innovative, competency-based teacher education program that is redefining the way teachers are prepared. Teacher candidates work towards a master’s degree in education leading towards an initial license at the secondary level in biology, chemistry or mathematics.
The WW Academy admits talented, committed individuals with background in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, mathematics—to our program in order to prepare them to succeed in the diverse classrooms of today and to shape and lead the schools of tomorrow. More details are available at: www.woodrowacademy.org/future-teachers/about-the-program
Your help is needed to identify these teacher candidates by serving as an Evaluator during the Academy’s “Selection Days” where invited applicants participate in a day-long interview process. Candidates prepare a short presentation and participate in small group activities which are facilitated by Evaluators who observe their work during the day. Evaluators then complete and submit a detailed rubric and admission recommendation for each candidate which is then reviewed by the Academy’s Selection Committee.
Evaluators are required to work from 9:00 AM- 12:00 PM on Selection Days, which are typically scheduled on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays. Four Selection Days will be scheduled in the Cambridge/Boston area between November 2018 and March 2019. Preliminary schedules will be shared at the end of September.
