Rowan Urban Teacher Academy (RUTA)

The Rowan Urban Teacher Academy serves as an excellent long-term recruitment strategy to increase the pool of candidates interested in becoming urban teachers. The goal of this program is to utilize students’ interest in education and broaden it to a greater perspective of urban education and the functions of schools. Students will gain experience in an urban classroom setting as they become acquainted with teacher practitioners and teaching on a personal and professional level. Working in small groups, students will plan and teach mini-lessons and/or activities to urban elementary school children. Each participant will be required to complete all assignments, keep a portfolio, and write a summary report about his/her experiences in the Urban Teacher Academy.

The RUTA program is currently being offered to school districts. For a description of the program’s organization, click here. A sample of the program schedule can be found at here. Rowan will provide faculty and RUTA mentor alumni who will work with district members to facilitate the program.  However, districts are responsible for funding the program.  A sample budget can be found here
