Area Teachers Partner with Lewis Students in Co-teaching Pilot Program
By the time Lewis University's education majors begin their senior year student teaching, they have already completed 100-150 hours in the classroom. They are ready to experience leading their own classes of students. Rather than spending their first few weeks observing their cooperating teachers, Lewis University is piloting a program that allows its student teachers, or "teacher candidates" as they are known today, to begin teaching alongside the teacher right away, thus allowing two professionally-prepared adults to actively engage with students from day one.

Reading Strategies Support Secondary Science Teachers
It's an admirable goal to educate oneself, but many Lewis University students go a step beyond to become educators themselves. Some even make it their goal to coach and expand the skills of other teachers. Master's-level students in the College of Education are encouraged to present their research findings to peer groups of working teachers, supervised by Professor of Reading and Literacy, Dr. Joyce Hayward.
