The Rural Teacher Residency (RTR) is a pathway that bundles the Master's in Education with a multiple subject or education specialist preliminary credential. Residents participate with cohorts of general and special education Residents to cultivate Professional Learning Communities, collaboration, and promote school change.
The Rural Teacher Residency (RTR) is a comprehensive partnership between the University's School of Education and four high-need rural school districts in northern California designed to improve the preparation of new teachers, to address the needs of rural schools, and to improve the achievement of all students to overcome the Achievement Gap.
MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching www.merlot.org) is an open online digital library of over 35,000 teaching and learning materials for educators and students around the world. The California State University has led MERLOT for 15 years and has integrated MERLOT into a wide variety of CSU's teacher education programs (e.g. Noyce Scholars, California Science Educators, California Math Educators, Education Leadership).
