Shiawassee RESD's Career and Technical Education Teaching Cadet Program


Course Description

Students will be involved in a fast paced, innovative, hands-on curriculum where they gain knowledge about teaching and learning. Teaching Cadets will develop skills that are helpful in college and beyond, such as presentation, public speaking, writing, communication and reasoning. Students experience the rewards of teaching through clinical placements in their local district as part of their course work. All students are required to observe and participate in a variety of classroom settings at the pre-school, elementary, middle, and high school (grade 9 only) levels, including general and special education. Students will also begin working on their “pre-teaching” portfolio. The course helps prepare students for careers in education as well as entry into college or university teacher preparation programs. Classes held at the CCRC in Vernon.

This is a State-approved CTE Program.
