TRANSDISCIPLINARY LITERACY STRATEGIES FOR CONTENT LEARNING
A personal, individualized approach
Goucher's Graduate Programs in Education combine top-quality instruction and a rigorous course of study with the support students need to meet the demands of a challenging program. Students have easy access to faculty, receive help from technical writers, and have the opportunity to form study groups with their peers. Our programs are designed by and for diverse, lifelong learners.
The faculty consists of current and retired school system teachers, administrators and psychologists, and full-time Goucher professors. Students choose Goucher because they know they will get the personal attention they deserve and need to succeed.
WHY A MASTER'S DEGREE IN TRANSDISCIPLINARY LITERACY STRATEGIES FOR CONTENT TEACHERS?
Goucher College Graduate Programs in Education has created a new area of specialization in the M.Ed. program focused on Literacy Strategies for Content Learning. The new specialization is designed to address the Common Core State Standards and empower all teachers to use proven, effective, reading-writing-listening-speaking-thinking strategies to improve student performance in the content they teach. This program is not designed to prepare teachers to be teachers of reading and writing; rather, it is designed specifically to meet the goal of content teachers to help students learn the content they teach! Strategies presented in this program can be used to help students read, write and think like scientists, historians and mathematicians etc. as well as listen and speak as competent learners in any area of study.
