AILACTE Journal, v5 p1-12 Fall 2008
Teacher preparation in the Commonwealth of Virginia requires numerous competencies. Faced with the challenges of creating a new general education core, faculty at Emory & Henry College exploited the synergies of the new program, teacher preparation competency requirements and the literature on effective teachers to reinforce a 172-year-old liberal arts tradition. The paper details how faculty identified and intends to implement those synergies.
