Dr. Ye (Jane) He (Teacher Education and Higher Education) received new funding in the amount of $429,319 from the U.S. Department of Education for the project “Engaging and Advancing Community-centered Teacher Development (EnACTeD).”  

This project showcases a community-centered teacher development model through which teacher educators, teacher candidates, families and community partners are actively engaged in the communities of practice. Through this model, families’ cultural and linguistic assets are leveraged through their engagement in teacher professional development module development, participation in family literacy and technology activities and support for teacher candidates’ bilingual language competency development. Inservice teachers are prepared to take on leadership roles in community-engagement activities and teacher mentoring through their participation in the PD and add-on licensure program. Preservice teachers are intentionally recruited from elementary majors and paraprofessionals with bilingual backgrounds. They are offered opportunities to practice dual language instructional strategies and seek English-as-a-Second-Language/dual language licensure.
