Training Guidance Support
  • IAW JROTC Directorate FY 14 Training Guidance
    • Para 3a. “… we must ensure our instructors are better prepared to accomplish their missions even before getting into the classroom.”

Results:

    • Fort Hays developed the JROTC Instructor Prep Certificate at Graduate and Undergraduate levels (see handouts)
    • Certificate includes three credits of ‘Student Teaching’ practicum evaluated by Fort Hays School of Education

“I was amazed at how much I have learned over this short period of time. I plan to review these textbooks [Educational Psychology & Secondary Methods] even more extensively as they contain a remarkable amount of information that will assist me in becoming a great educator. I never realized how much research has been conducted on teaching methods and how children learn.”

  • IAW JROTC Directorate FY 14 Training Guidance
    • Para 4. “Enhanced JROTC Program Awareness in your High Schools.”

Results:

    • College Credits for Cadets (CCC) program elevates the academic recognition of the JROTC curriculum
    • Some schools are developing “Leadership Academies.”
    • CCC Exceeds all other High School program academic credit potential (22+ credits)
    • Demonstrates the JROTC is more than great drill/raider or rifle teams as shown by the academic college credit potential

“RTG & Associate’s Leadership Credits Program is invaluable!”

“Many of our college bound cadets are interested or already registered.”

“…nothing but positive responses from parents.”

“…adds an extra dimension to our JROTC program. “

“…helping students prepare for their future.”

“Thank you for all of your help and for giving these students a head start.”

    • Para 6. “Instructors must continue to stay current with Teaching Strategies and techniques.”

Results:

    • Fort Hays State University’s Instructor Prep Certificate helps accomplish this objective
    • Evaluated via Student Teaching Practicum
    • Educating Exceptional Students course work
    • Educational Psychology, Secondary Methods, Classroom management and Learning and the Brain via DL and capstone paper
    • Introduction to Utilization of Technology in Classrooms course compliments the JSOCC/NIOT instruction

“I was able to reflect upon my practice from another perspective [while taking Secondary Methods and Educational Psychology].  I found it very helpful in figuring out my strengths and weaknesses over the past year and where I can improve next. .”

Results
  • Results from:
    • Fort Hays State University since 2009
      • 1367 course enrollments
      • 42 Degrees conferred to Instructors

        • 22 Bachelor

“Both classes [Educational Psychology & Secondary Methods] really opened my eyes to how much thinking and hard work goes into the teaching profession. Completing both these courses will definitely help in my professional development as a JROTC instructor.”
