Chalk and Wire


Chalk and Wire - What is it?

At the end of your program of study, this developmental portfolio will contain artifacts from the core courses of your program at Harding. These assessments have been chosen to demonstrate your knowledge skills and dispositions necessary to be an effective educator in the field. Assessments and the associate rubrics are tied to both national standards and Harding University's Cannon-Clary College of Education's conceptual framework. You should be able to see growth and development as you move through your program.

Access to Harding's Chalk and Wire website is only gained through registration of a course!

EDFD 200 for undergraduate level programs

EDT 600 for graduate level programs

You only need to register once at the undergraduate and once at the graduate level, NOT for each semester of coursework. For those of you in graduate programs, having EDT 600 on your transcript for one graduate program at Harding will fulfill the requirement should you pursue a second graduate degree from Harding.
