Social Justice in the Classroom Requires Your Participation

Teacher candidates here are immersed in social justice, informed by our conceptual framework.

As you learn classroom management and teaching methods, you will also examine how your perspective affects your teaching. You will explore how to use your students’ experiences to craft better curriculum. You will tackle questions of policy and politics head-on, from the local to national level. You will strive to enact equity pedagogies and environments which support the learning of all children.

Gain Extensive In-Classroom Experience

At the same time, you will gain extensive practical experience in the classroom.

You will put your skills to use right away and throughout your candidacy, with many opportunities to spend time with K–12 students at a variety of ages. During year one you will have a weekly practicum placement. In year two you will devote fall and spring quarters to your student-teaching assignments.

From first inquiry through graduation and beyond, you are supported by our knowledgeable, approachable staff and facultyOur faculty demonstrate teaching approaches as you learn them. They provide extensive coaching and feedback during your student teaching. 

From day one MiT graduates seem experienced beyond their years, and are prepared to apply a valuable range of skills and subjects to their work. I see the benefits of Evergreen’s interdisciplinary approach in work at the high school as MiT alumni make connections and foster projects with teachers of different subjects.
