Teacher Education Program

back to top The Wyoming Teacher Education Program (WTEP) is one of the premier teacher preparation programs in the United States. The National Education Association has selected UW as a model for teacher education programs across the country. It is nationally accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Secondary English teacher education at the University of Wyoming occurs in three phases.

  • Phase I begins in the sophomore year when students take EDST 2000, Becoming a Teacher, and begin working in the public schools.
  • In Phase II, EDST 3000, Teacher as Decision Maker, students are introduced to unit and lesson plans. During this practicum experience they teach in a k-12 classroom. Students are admitted to the WTEP upon meeting requirements and enrolling in Phase II.
  • Phase III is a two-semester sequence. The Phase IIIA semester takes place in the fall and consists of pedagogy classes and participation in a four-week practicum.   Phase IIIB is completed in the spring in the same public school. Working with the same mentor teacher during both practica enhances the educational experience. Application is made for Phase III in December of the year prior to actually enrolling.
For more information about the Phase program, including applications and necessary paperwork, see the Wyoming Teacher Education Program website. For more information about Phase IIIB, the student teaching semester, click here .
