Okay, so you want to get invovled with SETA, but you aren't sure exactly what type of "things" SETA does that you could also do (not counting our meetings). Well, you came to the right place. This page lists the events that have run, are currently running, will be running the entire semester, and will soon be running. (The Resources page lists completed events from previous years). While the list sometimes gets a little behind (people come up with new ideas all the time), it is generally a comprehensive look at what SETA is doing. Pick an item, any item--pick more than one if you want--, get more involved and find out what makes SETA so great.
Please e-mail any suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org - Subject: Event Suggestion(s) Also, if you are interested in helping run one of these events, please e-mail SETA - Subject: I Would Like to Help Run an Event.
This page is always under going severe updates. The Spring Semester of '11 is ending/over.
Events running through out the Spring '11 Semester
*Lesson plan collection
On our website we have a section for lesson plans. These are here to help future teachers (and new teachers for all those graduates) have an idea as to what they are doing. However, we don't really have all that many. So, one of our exec members is going to be taking up a "lesson plan collection." If you would like to help please e-mail SETA at email@example.com - Subject = Lesson Plan Collection .
The idea of a newsletter was raised in 08-09 by Danielle M. Petrosino. The Newsletter will cover somethings touched upon in SETA meetings, but it is also to give advice to current Sec Ed majors from other Sec Ed majors, to help education students stay up to date on what is going in "the real world" with respect to education, and more. Want to contribute? E-mail the newsletter. The newsletter can be found on the website if you did not get a printed copy. Check the Newsletter page for copies of the newsletter, and the committee page for information.
Our very own historian will be working to capture the moments of SETA in picture format. This will document our fun times and provide an insight into the world of SETA for all secondary education students and all students in general. Coming soon:Posting of pictures to website.
*Mentorship Program - Service, Informational, Advocacy
Taken from the idea currently used by accounting, SETA has set up a mentorship program for Secondary Education students. As of now, juniors and seniors will be mentors with freshmen and sophmores as those being mentored. This is to help with problems that students come up with anything related to secondary education. Likely the number one resource will be help with SCHEDULING and REGISTRATION. Seniors and juniors, don't fret. The information that you are to provide should be first being told to you by faculty. Please sign up to be a mentor or to be mentored. E-mail your name, contact information, and content area to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information you can also contact SETA through e-mail.
*Gathering Opportunities for: Working Together: TYC, KDP, Dreams
We are looking to have more collaboration on campus with other organizations. What do you think would be a great event for us to co-sponsor? For us to start with another group co-sponsoring? Send your ideas to email@example.com. Everything relevant is welcome!
We are going to undertake a huge new project that hopefully has wonderful payoffs. We are going to compile a list of where TCNJ students are teaching. Things will follow, such as discussions with said teachers and viewing job opportunities. Some questions may be similar to "are we being prepared to teach all students (urban/suburban)?"
*Committee for New Webpages: "Backgrounds" and "How To Deal With..."
These two webpages will be compiled from information provided by students that are doing/have done JPE (JFE) and/or student teaching. They are designed to help students understand what they might encounter in JPE and student teaching and what to do about it. This project will require a lot of input from students that are doing/have done JPE (JFE) and/or student teaching. Any help that could be provided will be appreciated. No student will be named, no school will be named, no co-op will be named - all identifying information will be removed. For a better description please visit the rough outlines of Backgrounds and How To Deal With....
*Committee for ...
Well what do you want a committee for? Get your idea turned into a committee!
*Adopt a Classroom - Service, Advocacy
We have adopted a library this time! our goal is to attempt to help make this library a better place for all the students. Under "Currently Running Events" you will see the small details of this plan
*BIG EVENT - Speaker - Taylor Mali - Advocacy, Informational, Social
We are working to bring Taylor Mali to TCNJ in the spring. We are doing this in coaltion with TYC, DREAMS, KDP, STD, and Lion's Eye. We need a total of $4,000. There will be small "events" that happen surrounding this and they will be listed under "Currently Running Events." Update: We are fully funded. Update: The date is set!

[One of our continuing goals is to make Secondary Education a major. Currently it isn't really called anything. This is not a plan to change any requirements. Merely for Sec Ed students to have what other Ed majors do. First, it would allow us to say we are double majoring--as we are. Second, it would give advisors for the Sec Ed part.] We have succeeded. We are now Dual Majors!
