The Triad Seminar is a 4 hour training, led by the Director of Field and Clinical
and the Southeast RPDC where each member of the Triad, teacher candidates, mentor
teachers, and university supervisors, will participate in a series of team building
activities as well as hear the same message of all expectations in the same setting.
The purpose of the Triad Seminar is to build a strong foundational relationship between
the teacher candidates, mentor teachers, and university supervisors. Having an additional
teacher in the classroom for an entire semester is a substantial change to any classroom
environment. Successful substantial change requires training and clear communication
of all expectations.
In this seminar, participants will be:
This training will be offered each semester in the locations that will accommodate the regions where Southeast Missouri State University places their students: St. Louis and Cape Girardeau.
It is important that the teacher candidates and mentor teachers communicate which meeting they will attend together. The location should be based on where the school is located and the accessibility of the mentor teacher.
We look forward to seeing all participants soon.
