We Support the Detroit Federation of Teachers.
There’s Strength in Numbers.
In these times of dramatic education reform, creating a critical mass of like-minded teachers can help affect widespread, positive change in Detroit. The Marygrove Master in the Art of Teaching (MAT) program requires that students collaborate with other teachers in dynamic learning groups—groups that can impact the trajectory of a school or even a district, by infusing best practices and greater accountability into daily instruction. Better teaching leads to better learning and ultimately to higher performing schools.
In our program, students benefit from instructors who are actual classroom teachers themselves. And you decide whether to participate in an online discussion format or as part of a face-to-face study team. Because only you know what works best for you.
What’s more, our courses are asynchronous, giving you the flexibility to keep up with course work at your own pace; whenever you want, wherever you want.
- Participate in an online cohort of 12-15 teachers.
- Communicate via online discussion boards and reflective journals each week.
