Master of Arts in Teaching
In partnership with two national education programs, Teach For America and Indianapolis Teaching Fellows, the Master of Arts in Teaching –Teacher Leadership Program provides teacher candidates with state licensure coursework and the ability to earn the Master of Arts in Teaching degree.
As a part of the two-year commitment, teacher candidates are placed in high-need schools and subject areas throughout Indianapolis public and charter schools.
Upon acceptance, prospective teachers begin a six-semester, structured curriculum designed to give them the knowledge, instructional strategies, classroom management techniques, and dispositions they need to be successful in the classroom. Classroom-based observations during the school year will focus on delivery of curriculum through instruction, assessment of student learning, and cultural competency.
