"Best Practices Make the Difference"
The University of Wisconsin-Platteville has been preparing teachers since 1866 and was the first normal school in the state. The school takes great pride in this tradition and is committed to the continuation of quality in its educational offerings and programs.
The School of Education prepares teachers who can demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be effective, reflective practitioners. Education programs are designed to develop communication skills including technology/media, knowledge of content and how to teach that content, and human relations. To complete the program, candidates must demonstrate that they have these competencies.
Several of the education courses include service learning opportunities to enhance and provide a meaningful community service experience and to apply classroom learning. Students have been enriched by participating in trips to Texas, Mississippi, participating in Wisconsin Badger Camp, local YMCA clubs, and after school programs to name a few.
