CASEP Two-Year Plan for Cohorts

Below are the courses included in CASEP. Students in the first-year cohort usually number between 25-30 students. Students take a number of courses together that are designed with future teachers in mind. In addition to the cohort model, program students also benefit from a monthly seminar for future teachers, as well as a leadership retreat where we explore the teaching profession through experiential learning activities.
