This year (Quarters 2,3, and 4), the Master in Teaching (MiT) program will carry forward the foundational work from The Roots quarter (Quarter 1) and will weave the following five experiential strands into our work in classrooms, schools, communities, and program work: Community Teaching, Inquiry, Learning in Context, Praxis and Teaching when the World is on Fire.    

In the Fall (Quarter 2) work begins at the end of August with a full time Back to School Experience through which you will participate in: (i) the early lessons and classroom experiences designed to build trusting relationships between educators and students; (ii) any team building, school wide initiatives, professional development, and professional learning communities; and (iii)  a Menu of Actions assignment through which you will both begin to establish the linkages between your district, school, classroom have to families, communities, and politics. You will also begin to cull resources and attend to curriculum uses, materials, practices, learning opportunities, and instructional support available and practiced in schools.   

At the end of September (and when classes officially begin at Evergreen), your full time in schools will shift to: 1) two days each week (Mondays and Fridays) of program work where you will engage in your endorsement area, Community Teaching, Culturally Responsive Classroom Management, and Adolescent Development (for secondary) and 2) three half-days (Tuesdays – Thursdays) of co-teaching work in a K-12 school each week, following the policies and protocols of each school district. In the Winter (Quarter 3), you will maintain the Monday and Friday program work schedule, while you gradually increase time and responsibility working in schools (T-Th, from half days to full days), you will also continue to develop your knowledge and skills in culturally responsive and community responsive planning, instruction, and assessment. In addition, you will develop the skills to do your own action research project on a question related to your teacher identity, teacher practice and relationships with families and communities. By Spring (Quarter 4), you will be working full days, Monday through Friday, in schools and meeting one afternoon/evening a week for a field seminar. 

Starting in August/September of 2021, we anticipate that most partner school districts will begin back in-person full time. We will follow the policies and protocols of each partner school district. The amount of in-person and remote hours for MiT program work outside of schools will depend upon the number of students in a given endorsement area and COVID protocols. For students pursuing an Elementary endorsement: we anticipate 100% of course work will be done remotely. For students pursuing Secondary endorsements:  we anticipate that between 50-75% of course work will be done remotely. Whether Evergreen program work is remote, in-person, or hybrid going forward into winter and spring will depend on the college responses to changing COVID levels. 

Student who are enrolled in the MIT program will register in Fall (Quarter 2) and will be automatically registered for Winter (Quarter 3) and Spring (Quarter 4).      

Technology needs: Students will need access to Zoom and Canvas. Additionally, students will need a video camera or use of their phone, and small tripod in order to film themselves teaching.
