SWOT Analysis

How will an analysis of program outcomes help you revise your personal and professional goal statements as a teacher?
Discussion Guidelines
• Write 2 full pages (double-space), which must include information from 3 professionals, scholarly sources that are cited in APA style and a complete bibliographic entry in APA style at the conclusion of the post. A website can be cited (with a URL) but does not count as the outside article unless it is clearly an entire website that uses peer-review. This permits use of an online scholarly journal, for example, that does not have a print version. But a website such as Wikipedia would not qualify because, while edited and vetted (to a degree), it is not a refereed source.
• APA citations are required
