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. The Graduate School at Brown offers a 12-month (summer plus academic year) MAT program to prepare college graduates for careers as secondary school teachers of English, history/social studies, or science (biology, chemistry, or engineering/physics). Students complete five courses in education, including the summer practicum and academic-year student teaching, and three courses in the student’s teaching field: English - English Department, Literary Arts, Comparative Literature History/Social Studies - History Department, Africana Studies, American Civilization, Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, Sociology Biology - Division of Biology and Medicine Chemistry - Chemistry Department Engineering/Physics - Division of Engineering, Physics Department
