A teacher whose Zombie apocalypse scenarios help students master geography. A music teacher who rocks the drums and microphone with local bands at her night job? These are only a few of the unique classroom instructors turned out by the Masters in Teaching (MiT) program at The Evergreen State College.
Evergreen will hold half-hour advising sessions on Tuesday, March 3, from 2 to 6pm, at the Tacoma Campus, 1210 6th Avenue, by appointment.
The MiT program is a full-time, two-year, professional teacher preparation program. Each new cohort begins in the fall.
During the first year, time is spent in the field observing and working with K–12 students and in seminars, workshops and lectures on Evergreen’s Olympia campus. Classes take place within a school week schedule.
During the second year, candidates spend nearly 2/3 of their time in K–12 schools. Students are asked to avoid outside employment during the two quarters of full-time, daily student teaching.
Candidates will also complete a Master’s Project, which provides the opportunity to explore current research on a teaching related topic of interest to the student.
Interested prospective students must preschedule an appointment for March 3 by emailing foranm.
