Program Description
The Teaching and Learning COGS is designed for teachers who desire to develop and hone their leadership skills and who wish to remain in the classroom. The program approaches leadership from the perspectives of exemplary teaching, continuous learning for all, a need to balance change with stability and the importance of peaceful existence in a diverse community of learners. This COGS serves as the Core of the M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership.
The following Five Core Propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) and three additional Principles identified by College of Education faculty provide the focus for the master's program:

  2. Teachers know the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students.
  3. Teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning.

  5. Teachers are members of learning communities.
