Education is as much about passion as scholarship. It's about reaching and teaching all students in ways that are both meaningful and culturally relevant.
In the classroom, great teachers inspire and engage all students to use their minds well and help all students develop to their greatest potential. Outside of the classroom, they contribute to a professional culture of collaborative inquiry and dedicate countless hours to redesigning curriculum, preparing materials and lectures and keeping up with the latest advances in academic technology.
As an elementary or secondary education major at Emmanuel College, you will first gain knowledge of issues of access and equity in the history of education in America. Then prepare yourself through in-class instruction and site placements, for research-based practice in the design, delivery and management of curriculum and instruction in math, the sciences, English language arts and social studies.
Using Boston as an extended classroom, Emmanuel students are given opportunities for field-based experiences in urban school settings, allowing for first-hand observation and to engage with learners from all cultures and with diverse instructional needs.
