SIFT Program Inspires Young Future Teachers

From July 10-29, approximately 20 high school juniors and seniors from more than 20 Connecticut school districts participated in Eastern's 15th annual Summer Institute for Future Teachers (SIFT) program. The program, supervised by Education Professor David Stoloff, is organized by Eastern and the Capital Region Education Council (CREC) and aims to increase the number of students who consider teaching as a career; emphasizes the growing role that technology plays in teaching and learning; and expands efforts to recruit teachers from the diverse communities in Connecticut.  (Justin Delrio, of New Britain, is entertained by two students in the Windham Middle School cafeteria.)
