Jan Carpenter Presents at National Conference

Dr. Jan Carpenter, education department chair, gave two presentations at the Association for Middle Level Education Conference held in Portland in November 2012.

Her first topic, co-presented with Penny Howell and Jeanneine Jones, was Strengthening Teacher Preparation through University/School Partnership, highlighting partnerships such as Marylhurst University's Professional Learning Lab Partnership program. These partnerships are designed to improve student learning and performance by improving the pre-service learning of teacher candidates in programs such as Marylhurst's MA in Teaching program.

Dr. Carpenter's second presentation was titled Holistic Teaching and Learning: Back to the Heart of Education. Her co-presenters were William Greene, Marcia Ososke, Younghee Kim, Micki Caskey, Linda Samek and Maureen Musser.

Both presentations will be published articles in the March 2013 edition of the Middle School Journal.

Dr. Carpenter also serves as chair of the Professional Preparation of Middle Level Teachers Advisory Committee.

Since its inception in 1973, the Association for Middle Level Education has been a voice for those committed to the educational and developmental needs of young adolescents. AMLE is the only national education association dedicated exclusively to those in the middle grades. The annual AMLE conference, attracting nearly 10,000 attendees, is one of the largest professional development events in education.
