• The Benefits of the Yearlong Coteaching Model

  • Dean Michael Sampson, Curriculum & Instruction Chair Judith McVarish, and other leaders at St. John’s University discuss the popularity of the yearlong RISE Program and its power as a recruitment tool. Cooperating teachers and administrators chime in on the value of the program’s length and of having interns develop in-depth knowledge of their classroom, which gives students an extra knowledgeable adult to attend to their learning needs. Interns themselves see this benefit as well as the asset of having a younger voice in the classroom.
