Brown Master of Arts in Teaching Program

Mission Statement:


"The Brown Teacher Education Program prepares future educators to understand fundamental principles of teaching and learning and to employ that understanding to work effectively with all children, youth, families and communities. Intentionally small in size, the program seeks to ensure that future teachers learn best practices in curriculum design and instruction, and to develop personal characteristics that enable them to work collaboratively with others. Student teachers are encouraged to seek constructive feedback, take risks, engage with colleagues in exploring sensitive issues of race, class, linguistic diversity, sexual orientation and gender, and to explore opportunities for personal and professional growth. Our commitment to contributing to the creation of a truly democratic, multiracial, multicultural society begins with the program’s work in the community and the schools and is best seen through the ability of graduates to reflect critically on their work and the world."

The Secondary Education Program

 

"In the secondary program in English, history/social studies, or science (biology, chemistry, or engineering/physics), MAT candidates study their disciplines broadly and in depth as they prepare themselves to help adolescents appreciate the structure and essential questions that comprise the discipline. Consisting of three distinct, yet interconnected, semesters, candidates begin the MAT year by teaching at Brown Summer High School, followed by either an academic semester of content-area coursework or the student teaching semester. MATs are coached in their efforts to transform subject matter into exciting and innovative curricula by Brown Teacher Education faculty and experienced mentor teachers. The secondary program emphasizes standards-based instruction, culturally relevant content, a belief in high expectations for all students, and assessment-driven instruction."
