  • Study Level Masters
  • Duration 12 months
In the secondary program in English, history/social studies, or science (biology, chemistry, or engineering/physics), MAT candidates study their disciplines broadly and in depth as they prepare themselves to help adolescents appreciate the structure and essential questions that comprise the discipline. Consisting of three distinct, yet interconnected, semesters, candidates begin the MAT year by teaching at Brown Summer High School, followed by either an academic semester of content-area coursework or the student teaching semester. MATs are coached in their efforts to transform subject matter into exciting and innovative curricula by Brown Teacher Education faculty and experienced mentor teachers. The secondary program emphasizes standards-based instruction, culturally relevant content, a belief in high expectations for all students, and assessment-driven instruction. Engineering/Physics Students must plan to complete a minimum of eight (8) courses in engineering, which should include work in the following: Mechanics Electricity and magnetism Optics Properties of matter Thermodynamics
