Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Secondary Education and Teaching
Description:The Secondary program is a two-year after-degree program that prepares individuals to teach in grades 8 through 12 in specialty areas. This model reflects current thinking about optimizing the match between educational theory and children's levels of cognitive and social development. The Secondary program is designed to educate teachers to combine pedagogical excellence across disciplinary areas with a learner-centered approach to practice. Philosophically, the program is designed around constructivist principles, and it emphasizes approaches to practice such as inquiry-based learning, strategies for instruction, integration of language across the curriculum, inclusion of diverse learners and perspectives, the development of caring and respectful communities of learners, and reflective practice. Successful applicants to the Secondary program are assigned to a cohort group of approximately 35 students and normally take all of their courses with that cohort group.
