Dr. Wilcox Visits a Second Grade Class

Submitted by julia.murray on
Art City Elementary School and Brigham Young University (BYU) are partners in teaching and developing amazing teachers, in doing so Dr. Brad Wilcox, Professor of Literacy for the Education Department at BYU, came to Art City with his students.  He modeled how to teach a literacy lesson, his students observed him, his lesson involved the students (Mrs. Westover's Second grade students) asking them to describe their teacher, as they did he, as well as the Second Grade students, wrote on a giant note pad.  Dr. Wilcox said, "I can show them (BYU Students) powerpoints and videos of how a lesson should go but it just is not the same as when you go out into the classroom and see how it works, then to apply it yourself and seeing what works and what does not work."
