Prospective Secondary Education Students: Get Started
“As I reflect upon my experiences at the University of Minnesota, Morris, I am grateful for the liberal arts focus the institution required of its students. I could never teach literature such as
The Crucible or To Kill a Mockingbird without an understanding of the historical contexts in which the pieces were set and written. I could never teach persuasive writing without knowledge about Aristotle or psychology. Morris invited me to recognize that connections give learning and life meaning, and I silently thank my alma mater every time one of my students announces, ‘Hey, this reminds me of what we talked about in history last week!’&rdquo
