Weber State now offers incoming freshman a class ED 1010 Into to Education to introduce potential teacher ed students to the career. Weber, Davis, and Ogden also offer concurrent enrollment classes to high school students. Davis and Ogden also have organized (along with WSU College of Ed) Future Education Association chapters that have been very active. Several of the professors have invited me to teach a unit of school law. It is a great opportunity to talk to possible teacher ed students and introduce them to many of the professional and ethical standards that we all deal with each day. Encourgage your students to search out and register for the concurrent classes and if they show interest in becoming a teacher, they should look to get involved at WSU.
Congrats to the OEA members who won $25 Subway gift cards for entering the blog contest.
