The Gardner-Webb University School of Education is working with a local elementary school in Cleveland County, N.C., to provide meaningful learning opportunities for future teachers prior to their student-teaching experience. Each week, three GWU classes travel to Washington Elementary School near Waco, N.C., during their normal instructional time on Mondays and Tuesdays. Dr. Lane Wesson’s Language Arts Methods class, Dr. Cindy McKinney’s Fine Arts Integration class, and Dr. Jason Parker’s Social Studies Methods class are each involved in the collaboration, which helps provide much-needed classroom exposure to pre-service teachers well in advance of their 16-week student-teaching experience.
