Successful completion of the M.A.T. program of study and passing scores on the required GaPSC-approved Content Pedagogy Assessment and GACE Content Assessments lead to eligibility for Level 5 induction certification.
The program for secondary certification in grades 6-12 prepares candidates to effectively teach in one of the following content areas: Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Math, or Physics.
This innovative model of teacher education is patterned after a medical clinical model with embedded clinical experiences and a three-year residency. The STEM M.A.T. closes the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge by focusing on STEM teaching and learning.
Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to:
- Demonstrate the ability to promote an interdisciplinary perspective using the following STEM reasoning modalities: complex adaptive systems, computational reasoning, model-based reasoning, quantitative reasoning and evidence-based claims.
- Design and implement a developmentally appropriate interdisciplinary STEM curriculum.
- Demonstrate competency in developing and implementing a wide variety of formative and summative assessment strategies.
- Utilize effective teaching pedagogy to make connections among academic knowledge, STEM practices and contextual influences on the students, school and community.
- Engage in reflective practice and self-assessment of pedagogy and find opportunities to grow professionally and develop emerging leadership qualities.
- Demonstrate the ability to foster relationships with school colleagues, parents, community and agencies to promote and advocate for the learning and well being of the adolescent.
