eTRAIN stands for electronic Teacher Resource and Information Network. On the eTRAIN website you will find resources and websites that you can point out for your student teacher if they need additional help. Here are some examples.
If your student teacher....
- needs some assistance in developing rubrics... send him/her to the eTRAIN site and look under Assessments.
- needs help in differentiating instruction... send him/her to the eTRAIN site and look under Pedagogy.
- wants to incorporate technology into the lesson but needs some ideas... direct him/her to eTRAIN and look under Technology.
