at Wheaton College
The Public Schools home-page
"Wheaton College helps its students become agents of beneficial change — consistent with their Christian faith, principles, and love — when they teach in public and private schools."
The purpose of this page is to give you a useful guide to the teacher ed program at Wheaton, without cluttering up the home page with too much detail.
There are two main pages. Here are my suggestions:
Department Overview (4.2 k): read all of it, beginning with historical background about Wheaton's commitment to improving public (and private) education, followed by an overview of the department's philosophy/mission and teacher education program.
Conceptual Framework (21 k plus references): read the introduction, and the beginning and end of each section; all of it is worth reading — it's densely written, with careful thought, is packed with lots of good ideas in a relatively short paper — but this reading strategy will give you a quick feeling for what's in it, then you can return and read all of it (or at least your favorite parts) more completely and closely. / and the page ends with a link to an expanded version of the Conceptual Framework
