Teach Oklahoma is an exemplary project that targets high school junior and senior students who possess high academic and leadership standards. These students are chosen to participate in the Teach Oklahoma program to encourage them to consider the teaching profession as a viable career choice. Those who do not become educators evolve into strong advocates for teachers and proponents for education.
The Teach Oklahoma curriculum is a hands-on practice that explores the various areas of teaching, observation and professional portfolio development, while engaging students in fascinating clinical teaching exercises within an actual educational setting. These activities expose Teach Oklahoma students to the following: the child development process, diversity issues, lesson planning, and the variety of various learning styles, differentiated instruction strategies, and oral presentation skills.
