The Elementary Education faculty believes that well prepared elementary school teachers are facilitators of active learning. As reflective practitioners, teachers engage students in the learning process by using research findings and experience-based strategies and practices to make sound educational decisions. These decisions should be based upon an articulated educational philosophy, a thorough knowledge of students' strengths, and needs and an analysis of various learning environments.
The Elementary Education Program fulfills the goal of preparing such teachers through a program based on a broad liberals arts background and professional preparation, including a planned sequence of courses and field experiences in the Baltimore Metropolitan area.
Departmental faculty are uniformly committed to students. As an integral part of the developmental teaching/learning experience, and reflecting commitment to the university's intentional academic advising program, students work with advisers in a strategic and progressive planning process across all years at the university. Accordingly, to support their personal and professional success, all COE students are required to confer prior to registration each semester with their assigned advisers.
