University of Wyoming Lab School

 

Education students at the University of Wyoming get their hands-on training as future teachers at the UW Lab School, which just celebrated their 125th anniversary. Their mission is to create a positive learning community that will recognize, foster, and assess continuous improvement toward high levels of academic and social achievement for ALL students, pre-service teachers, faculty, and staff. Students lead Socratic seminars as part of the Matthew Shepard Symposium, and they have led Socratic seminars for the League of Democratic Schools. Students have the opportunity to create their own electives, for example “The Force of Altruism”, which does events like a peace jam and pie day to introduce students to social issues.
