Learn more about how the program works

The Master in Teaching program will be accepting applications in spring 2020 for a spring 2021 start.

During the next several months, the faculty and staff will be working with community partners to restructure our program while honoring our conceptual framework, including:

  • Social Justice and Culturally Responsive Theories and Practice
  • Democracy and Schooling
  • Developmentally and Socioculturally Appropriate Teaching and Learning

We value your patience while we engage in this process and invite you to support this work by sharing what you hope for from our program.  Another way to provide input will be through upcoming listening sessions.  Stay tuned for times and dates.

Individuals interested in starting the program in spring 2021 are encouraged to view the subject areas you can teach and our application requirements.  You can also schedule an advising appointment by contacting Jazminne Bailey at baileyj@evergreen.edu.

 

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 faculty.  Our 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.
