Curriculum & Instruction
I have been given the wonderful opportunity to attend American University as a grad student who is enrolled in the M.Ed Curriculum and Instruction. I am a DC Teaching Fellow and the fellowship has partnered with American University to provide their highly selected fellows with the opportunity to further their education. One major pro with my graduate program is that it is tailored for the working school teacher. With that being said, it does not focus on the development of new teacher but is designed to cultivate master teachers by expanding on their experiences inside the classroom paired with new insights. The support and the variety of staff is an extreme plus of the program. The professors come from all different walks of life bonded by their passion for education. My only con about the program is that the classes are held off campus which gives me a feeling of not being apart of the AU community.
