Progressive 100% Online Academic Modules

You’ll study on your schedule — log in at night, on the weekend, or on a lunch break. Each five-week module allows you to connect learning theory with classroom practice.

Preparation: Your course work will help you learn about your students, their families, and their urban community. In the classroom, you’ll apply this knowledge as your mentor teacher starts the school year.

Foundation: You’ll learn about the different kinds of classrooms, and connect how you were taught to how you’ll teach. In the classroom, you’ll apply this knowledge as you understand why your mentor teacher establishes certain routines and procedures.

Active practice: Your course work will focus on your content area and how you teach that subject to diverse learners, including bilingual speakers, students with special needs, English language learners, and students with varying literacy abilities. In the classroom, you’ll apply this knowledge to your students’ community.

Lead teacher: You’ll learn about your responsibilities as a teacher and how those duties affect your relationship with your students. As the lead teacher in the classroom, you’ll apply all your course work to ensure your teaching meets the needs of your school and each student’s academic achievement goals.

At the end of the school year, you’ll finish your research project. At that point, you’ll have completed the requirements for your EMAT and demonstrated the skills of a highly effective teacher.
