In Focus

Voices From the Field
A few MAT candidates reflect on the importance of their student teaching experiences.

Julia Sayles
During this class, students were learning about different types of conflict (Person v. Person, Person v. Nature, Person v. Society, and Person v. Self). We were watching a video that outlined the different types of conflicts, then I gave an example of that conflict in life/literature/etc. and then the students had to come up with their own examples in groups. In this photo Carolyne is sharing her conflict with me and her group (sitting in front of her, not pictured).
