Partnership with pacific University

ACT Teacher Residents attend Pacific courses delivered at Arbor School and at Pacific University's Forest Grove campus. This coursework spans requirements established by the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) and Pacific University, focusing on such areas as child development, assessment, social justice, educational linguistics for ESOL, science and place-based education. Strong emphasis on literacy and reading underpins Teacher Residents' preparation for work with young children from many backgrounds and cultures.
