Our distinct approach focuses on social justice, social-cultural models of teaching and learning, proficiency-based learning, and case study methodology.
Your cohort will experience the sequence of courses and internships together learning from nationally acclaimed professors who are top scholars and researchers in the field. The support and dynamics of your cohort are an essential part of your success. The small cohort size also results in seminar-style classes where we model what you will practice with students in your internship. Expect to participate in collaborative, hands-on learning and co-teaching experiences in your classes.
