The Teachers College in the News
From September 15, 2015 WIBW, "Emporia State celebrates their new Art Therapy facility and program birthday"
From September 13, 2015 Topeka Capital-Journal, "Washburn Rural, Silver Lake, Cair Paravel students score well on ACT test"
James Persinger, interim chairman of the department of psychology in the Teachers College at Emporia State University, says ACT scores are helpful for gauging a teenager’s academic preparedness for college.
But, Persinger cautioned, the scores don’t fully correlate with college success — meaning, for example, that a student with a low score can do better in college than a student with a high score — nor have the scores been shown to measure teacher or school quality.
From June 8, 2015, Bright, medium.com's publication about innovation in education, "Treating Student Teachers Like Doctors-In-Training"
Instead of one semester of student teaching, which is common at many teacher preparation programs, students at Emporia State complete a full year of student teaching at partner school districts across the state. Students are strategically matched with “mentor teachers” to ensure a good fit — a shy student would, for example, be matched with a mentor who has had success helping student teachers overcome classroom stage fright. Mentor teachers and principals are trained on how to supervise student teachers.
