In collaboration with Emmanuel graduate, Kierstin Giunco ’17, Associated Professor of Education Christine Leighton and current student Kayla Balthazar '20 are working with local elementary students to deepen reading engagement and comprehension.
Reach and teach all populations with equal parts passion and scholarship.
Emmanuel’s School of Education trains students in current theory and research-based practice in the design, delivery, and management of curriculum and instruction, from the exploration of access and equity in the history of American education to in-class instruction and site placements. Using Boston as an extended classroom, students explore a variety of learning styles and instructional methods to meet the needs of all students.
The School’s undergraduate programs in elementary and secondary education prepare students to be leaders in creating—in their classrooms and communities—a culture of collaborative inquiry centered on student learning and healthy development and deeply rooted in social justice. With Emmanuel’s Master of Education degree—and graduate certificates in Sheltered English Immersion, Moderate Disabilities and Instructional Design—practical knowledge and real-world training with a focus on urban education and culturally responsive teaching come together to help students build a thriving classroom—and a successful career.
