ith many newly graduated high school seniors headed off to college, they will be making important decisions related to their majors. Whether they are undeclared or fully committed, new college students need to know there are wonderful opportunities available through the Disney Company. I have conducted many lectures in my college classrooms, including showing countless videos of the Disney College Program and Disney Professional Internship Program. So, what are these programs; how does one become a part of these programs; and what does one do once they’re accepted? Glad you asked!
Through the years, the Disney Company has become the ultimate example of conservation. As an educator, teaching students about conservation has always been a fun task for me…especially when Disney is involved. If you want a “new” way to teach students about conservation, The Educated Mouse has created the ultimate “Educator’s Guide to Teaching Conservation Through Disney.”
Have you ever wondered how to incorporate Disney or Pixar into your classroom writing? I found the perfect solution. As I was teaching how to write a compare and contrast paper, I wanted to use something “fun” AND “obvious.” I wanted the subject I chose to show a stark contrast among the characters being examined.
As a college professor of Education, I teach multiple sections and multiple topics each semester. This semester I am teaching Social Science for Early Childhood Education. In essence, I am teaching teachers how to teach Social Studies to elementary students. Our second week of class did not meet because of the observance of Martin Luther King’s birthday. I decided to give an out-of-class assignment that would be fun, represent the citizenship of Social Studies, and would be in keeping with the mission of MLK day.
