The Cleopatra D. Thompson Curriculum Center, located in Room 316 of the Joseph H. Jackson College of Education Building, serves as the bridge for relevant PK-12 curricula, technology, and best practices for instructional delivery. The center has been redesigned to support the seamless transition between higher education and PK-12 for our college faculty, pre-service teachers, and all education majors.
Faculty, students, and staff have access to a variety of multi-media resources and curricular materials for PK-12 classrooms. Special appropriations were allocated to completely upgrade all elementary and secondary textbooks, literature from various countries, and a variety or resources used by candidates in all academic departments. Students and staff have access to tools and materials for designing and constructing two-three dimensional instructional aids. A readily accessible model library of elementary and secondary curriculum materials and textbooks have been collected to assist teacher training courses and to provide practicum experiences for prospective and in-service teachers through simulated classroom experiences.
