The Theoretical and Philosophical Foundations of the Undergraduate Teacher Licensure Programs at Saint Michael's College

This page was completed by students in ED231 Schools and Society during the 2011 Fall semester. The list of Great Educators was generated by faculty members in the Elementary Education and Secondary Education licensure programs at SMC. Note: These resources are meant only as an introduction to the ideas of these Great Educators and are not meant to replace deeper study using primary sources in higher level courses.
