The Prime Model

The Educator: A prescriptive, reflective and integrative practitioner

To be effective in the classroom, teachers require a repertoire of proven skills.

By combining established research based teaching principles of instruction along with instructional flexibility, East Central is meeting the challenge of preparing well qualified teachers.

The PRIME MODEL signifies an approach that is prescriptive with regard as to what should be taught, reflective regarding what has been taught, and integrates the curriculum.
