The conceptual framework was developed by the professional community invested in teacher preparation at Meredith College including the public school partners as well as Meredith faculty. The conceptual framework that guides the work in the Department of Education is research-based and is aligned with professional and state standards. It embraces the vision of globalization set forth by both the College and the State Board of Education and is focused on preparing teachers who are well-equipped to meet the needs of the diverse students found in our schools.

Our courses and fieldwork prepare our students to be teachers who will:

  • Exhibit culturally relevant and inclusive teaching
  • Practice connected pedagogy
  • Engage in reflective teaching
  • Utilize continuous assessment
  • Demonstrate leadership
  • Understand content
