3 M.Ed. energize teachers in the classroom YOU TEACH because you love it. WE HELP you learn new approaches and become a master teacher. CHILDREN BENEFIT from your enthusiasm in the classroom. Anchored by the university s rich history of teacher education, Elon s M.Ed. program is designed with a teacher s demanding schedule in mind. The innovative summer cohort program allows you to earn a master s degree and advanced licensure over the course of three summers. You can choose from three programs elementary education, special education and gifted education. Elon s strong sense of community is what M.Ed. students consistently cite as one of their favorite aspects of the program. You ll find that students are eager to share their areas of expertise, professors make themselves accessible, and staff members go out of their way to help you reach your goals. A fully accredited program Elon is widely recognized for the success of its teacher education program. M.Ed. students boast a 100% pass rate on advanced licensure exams. Elon s M.Ed. program is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. The Master of Education program at Elon University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), 2010 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC 20036; phone (202) This accreditation covers initial teacher preparation programs and advanced educator preparation programs. NCATE is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation to accredit programs for the preparation of teachers and other professional school personnel.

4 Cultivating top quality Teachers Elon s M.Ed. program features several key components: Convenient summer schedule Elon s innovative summer cohort program allows you to focus your attention on graduate studies during a concentrated period of time. You take the majority of courses over three summers and the remaining courses online during the intervening school years when your teaching load is the most demanding. This offers you the flexibility of studying at home when you are teaching and the convenience of completing the majority of your graduate work during summer breaks. Students in the summer cohort program attend classes during the day for three weeks in June and another three-week term in July. Small classes As a teacher, you know the importance of class size. Average class size in the M.Ed. program is 15. Elon keeps classes small to encourage close collaboration among students and faculty. You ll have the opportunity to exchange ideas with local teachers from other grades, school systems and levels of experience as well as teachers from other parts of the world. Because Elon s M.Ed. is a cohort program meaning you ll take your courses with the same group of students friendships form quickly and bonds run deep. Students come from a variety of backgrounds, so you ll not only learn with your classmates, you ll learn from them in small group work, class discussions and even casual conversations about your careers. Elon s central location draws students from both the Triangle and Triad areas, which allows you to network with other teachers from school systems across a major section of North Carolina. Discounted tuition Elon s summer cohort program is offered at a substantially reduced cost when compared to paying for individual courses. Your cost for the entire three years of study is fixed at the beginning of your first summer session. Elon also offers several options for dividing up your payments over the three-year period, and financial aid is available in the form of Stafford loans. Action research development You will learn how to critically evaluate research literature as well as how to conduct action research projects. In a required online course, you will write an action research prospectus, and under the direction of a faculty advisor, conduct research and record results in your graduate portfolio. International opportunities New for 2007, Elon offers an exciting study abroad option for M.Ed. students. You can study in Costa Rica for a week as part of a curriculum course during your first or second summer, depending on your program. Graduate portfolio Instead of taking comprehensive exams, your culminating project will be an on-line graduate portfolio. You ll select work that demonstrates your competency in five standard benchmarks for master teachers instructional expertise, knowledge of learners and learning, knowledge of content, research skills, and professional involvement and leadership. Two independent evaluators review each portfolio, and a passing grade is required to graduate from the program.

6 Elementary Education Teachers who want to study elementary education (K-6) in more depth will take 33 hours of graduate courses specific to this area: elementary curriculum development, diagnostic instruction and consultation skills. All students seeking graduate licensure in elementary education are required to complete the graduate core curriculum, the elementary education core and two electives from such topics as math, science, literature and instructional technologies.

Johanna Johnson is no exception. The relationships I have formed within my cohort are very special. I truly think that they will withstand the test of time. We have come to depend on each other for support and encouragement, she says. As a fifth grade teacher at New Hope Elementary in Orange County and a mother of three, Johanna needed an M.Ed. program to mesh with her lifestyle. It was Elon that fit the bill. When you are my age and you go back to school, you don t have the time, energy or money to waste. It needs to be a meaningful and relevant experience, Johanna says. She appreciates the concentrated format of Elon s M.Ed. program. I signed up for the program because it is intense, but short, she says. I m not one to drag something out for five years, and I didn t want to do that for my master s degree. In her 21 years in the classroom, Johanna has seen education go through many changes. She sees the M.Ed. program as a way to keep current for today s classroom. She feels that her M.Ed. degree will also be a valuable tool for advancement. I will have the credentials so that if other educational opportunities open up, I can pursue them and better market myself, she says. Having graduated from a large public university, Johanna says she enjoys the advantages of Elon s close-knit community. A part of me wishes that I had gone somewhere like Elon for my undergraduate experience, she says. I love everything about it!

9 Special Education Teachers enrolled in the Special Education program take a closer look at working with students with special needs (K-12). They will take 36 Peter Ruhiri M.Ed., Special Education Class of 2008 Hailing from Kenya, Peter Ruhiri brings a global perspective to the Elon M.Ed. program. Peter is participating in the VIF program, a three-year faculty exchange program. While in the States, he chose to continue his education at Elon because of the special education component as well as the affordable tuition. He says he also welcomes the challenge of being on the opposite side of the classroom once again. It was fun to go back to the classroom, make new friends, and encounter new challenges, he says. I was busy and engaged throughout the summer. Peter currently teaches algebra at Ferndale Middle School in High Point, N.C. He has learned to grasp new technologies and education strategies through the M.Ed. program. He finds that this new knowledge has made his classroom a more energetic and engaging atmosphere. Peter hopes to eventually take what he learns back to Africa. When I return to Kenya I will apply what I have learned to help the communities that helped me to get the education I have today, he says. In addition to gaining knowledge from his professors, Peter feels that his peers in the program have made an impact on him as well. They have helped me understand and learn more about America and its citizens, he says. We have gotten along well and shared helpful educational information which has helped me grow professionally. They have made an impression on my life. hours of graduate courses on topics such as assessment methods, curriculum development and the nature and needs of students with learning disabilities. Special Education students also take a three-hour internship. This internship takes place in Elon s Summer Learning and Enrichment Academy, an innovative summer program for local elementary and middle school students with special learning needs. The internship provides an opportunity to create individualized learning environments and work closely with students with disabilities. All students seeking General Curriculum licensure in Special Education are required to complete the graduate core curriculum as well as a curriculum designed specifically for Special Education.

10 Gifted Education Teachers who want to study more closely the unique educational issues of gifted students (K-12) will take 33 hours of graduate courses in areas such as social and emotional needs of gifted students, curriculum development and instructional methods for gifted students. In addition to the graduate and Gifted Education core, students will select two electives from a variety of topics, such as math, science, literature and instructional technologies. Sample Gifted Education schedule Year I Summer I Graduate and Gifted Education Core Advanced Psychological Theory in the Classroom (3) Advanced Masters Seminar I (1) Instructional Methods for Gifted Students (3) Educational Testing & Measurement (3) Fall/Spring I Online Foundations of Education of Gifted Students (3) Social and Emotional Needs of Gifted Students (3) Year II Summer II Graduate and Gifted Education Core Curriculum Development and Differentiation for Gifted Students (3) Advanced Masters Seminar II (1) Collaboration and Consultation Skills (3) Elective (3) Fall II Online Educational Research (3) Year III Summer III Concluding Professional Experiences Elective (3) Advanced Masters Seminar III (1) Melissa Walker M.Ed., Gifted Education Class of 2008 Melissa Walker s love of teaching started at home. I began my life teaching my little brother, she says. Now, he is a senior Honors Fellow and biology major at Elon! With an undergraduate degree from Elon, Melissa has returned for the M.Ed. program because it matched her busy schedule. The structure of the program allows her to take classes during her summer breaks, giving her time to devote to her studies without compromising her passion for teaching. My life revolves around teaching. I was not willing to give up extended amounts of time for graduate work during the school year, she says. The summer cohort program allows me to focus on learning only, instead of having to worry about planning lessons and writing papers at the same time. It provided me with the best of both worlds and was the ideal situation for me. Melissa currently teaches fifth grade at Alexander Wilson Elementary School in Graham, N.C. She finds herself taking what she has learned at Elon and applying it in her own classroom. I have found myself constantly thinking about what I learned this summer as I plan lessons, she says. I also like to share what I ve learned with my colleagues. With her commitment to teaching firmly in place, Melissa believes that learning should never stop. Teachers should never stop learning new ways to meet the diverse needs of their children, she says. My graduate studies at Elon have not only made me a better teacher, they have made me a better thinker. Portfolio Approval (Faculty Review)
