@TEACH QUEST Global meets not only the critical need for teachers of culturally, linguistically, and academically diverse students in Texas, but also meets the needs of talented, potential professionals who may find themselves searching for service jobs.

Curriculum
Preparing teachers for the high-stakes performance on the TExES and in the classroom (TEKS & STAAR), the TEACH curriculum focuses on an integrated and developmental learning process. The interdisciplinary nature of the TEACH curriculum conforms to the required state standards. @ TQ Global Professors weave the specific competencies of each certificate area through each portal course.

Brain-based Emphases

TEACH delivers the curriculum through a Suite of Courses developed by college professors and master teachers. Framed on the brain-based research, instructors connect candidates to what Katz and Rubin (1999) coined as Neurobics, the new science of brain exercise. The authors present a deliberate allusion to physical exercise. Neurobics, however, refers to exercising different brain areas rather than different muscle groups. Generally, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking while downplaying the right-brain ones. Program proposes to shift the learning paradigm, guiding candidates through techniques using both sides of the brain, a more whole-brained orientation.
