In today's schools, effective teachers need a complex set of skills. Your professors in Marywood's Department of Education will help you develop your abilities to teach effectively by using a variety of instructional techniques to foster creativity, to actively engage your students in problem-solving and other learning activities, and to create an intellectually exciting learning environment. The knowledge you gain in Marywood's program and put to use when you become a teacher will have a direct impact on the future. You will learn how to encourage your students to be lifelong learners, cooperate and collaborate with each other, develop responsibility, demonstrate respect for individual and cultural differences, apply the principles of wellness to their daily lives, and understand their civic responsibility for an interdependent and just world. You'll graduate prepared to live responsibly in an interdependent world and prepared to help your students do so as well!
