English Language Arts Grades 7-12
The Adolescent English Education Program prepares prospective teachers to serve as highly effective educators in urban middle and high schools. Through rigorous course work and practicum experiences, students learn how to provide an academically rigorous education to students of diverse backgrounds, abilities and interests. They will also study research-based theories and methods of teaching to students with special needs, including special education students and English language learners. In addition to their coursework in education, Teaching Fellows take graduate courses in English in the College of Arts and Sciences as part of their program.
This two-year program leads to a Masters of Science in Education and eligibility for New York State Initial Certification in English Language Arts - Grades 7 to 12. Like all Teaching Fellows Programs at Hunter College, it features an enhanced and enriched field supervision component. Each Teaching Fellow is observed and critiqued by experienced educators at least four times each semester. In addition, English Education Teaching Fellows participate in Hunter College’s Video Analysis Initiative. The purpose of the Video Analysis Initiative is to make the clinical experience more effective for the Teaching Fellows. At least one of their observations will be videotaped and critiqued.
