In your third year, the Teaching I course material becomes more complex as we dig deeper into techniques learned in the Education and Training course. Course content includes topics such as funding sources, budget preparations, legal aspects, teaching and learning theories, curriculum development, community resources and services, scope and sequence charts, lesson plans, testing, and grading. Over the course of the year you will begin observing teachers at Parker High School, attending more in depth college visits, and attend the Interview Skills Career Development Conference. The conference and pre-sessions will prepare you for resume drafting, dressing professionally, managing your social media, and mock interviews. During the summer after your junior year, you will have the opportunity to participate in an Academy Internship where you begin to apply what you’ve learned in a real-world setting.
