Transcription

1 98 In each graduate program offered at Wheelock College, students explore the fundamental theories, research, and practice of the professions serving children and their families. Each program involves the study of development and learning within a cultural context, as well as a critical consideration of existing knowledge. This includes re-evaluation of the historical and contemporary significance of race, culture, social class and gender. The developmental perspective advanced at Wheelock responds to the contributions of scholars, students, educators, human service professionals, and to the children, families, and communities whose challenges and achievements guide their efforts. In practice, this perspective considers human development to be an integration of thinking, feeling, communicating, and acting in a dynamic environment. In their graduate programs, Wheelock students concentrate on chosen areas of specialization. Critical understanding of the practices and research methods in the professions enables students to identify problems for study and to use diverse methods of inquiry to seek and implement solutions. Encouraging original and creative scholarship, the graduate programs advance and strengthen the Wheelock mission. Recent years have brought about dramatic changes in the structure of American families and in the lives of children. These changes have served to highlight both the complexity and importance of Wheelock s mission. The increasing complexity of carrying out that mission in a multiracial, multicultural society, the national movement to rethink teacher education, and Wheelock s commitment to educating professionals for the 21st century have led the faculty and administration of Wheelock College to develop the following curriculum. POST-BACCALAUREATE NON-DEGREE PROGRAMS COURSE CLUSTERS: CONTINUING STUDIES FOR TEACHERS In 2007, the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education approved three clusters of courses that will contribute to the advancement of an Initial license to the Professional level for teachers with a masters degree, and after other state requirements for work experience and mentoring are fulfilled. The three approved course clusters are in ELL/ESL, Reading, and Special Education. (An approved course cluster does not lead to a new Initial license without a practicum and other requirements.) 12-credit Course Cluster in Teaching English Language Learners a Second Language (advances an Initial license in Early Childhood, Elementary, or Special Education to the Professional Level). The four 3-credit courses are:

2 12-credit Course Cluster in Reading (advances an Initial license in Early Childhood, Elementary, ELL or ESL, or Moderate Disabilities to the Professional Level). The four 3-credit courses are: Individualized Instruction in Literacy credit Course Cluster in Special Education (advances an Initial license in Early Childhood, Elementary, ELL or ESL to the Professional Level. The five courses are: NON-DEGREE SPECIALIZATIONS OR CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS CERTIFICATE IN ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERSHIP (12 CREDITS) of current nonprofit leaders will retire and their organizations are not involved in succession planning or training of the next generation of leaders. This is also true of higher education where we will be seeing a generational shift in leadership. As these shifts are approaching, more opportunities will be opening up for people interested in taking on leadership positions and responsibilities in these institutions. The Certificate Program is designed to address this emerging need by providing students with the theory, skills, knowledge and hands-on experience to you for advancement in the nonprofit and higher education management and leadership. PROGRAM: PART TIME Semester 1 (Fall) Semester 2 (Spring) Planning, Evaluation and Marketing Development

3 CERTIFICATE IN PARENTING EDUCATION (15 CREDITS) 100 Increasingly, parenting education is being recognized as an appropriate strategy for supporting parents and parents-to-be, and as a foundation for raising healthy children and families. There is a high demand for knowledgeable, skilled professionals in this developing field. In this program, professionals who work with families in supportive, educational and therapeutic capacities will gain knowledge of the issues and concerns of parents, and of how to respond to these concerns; gain an understanding of how adults grow and develop and of the developmental stages of parenting; and gain the skills needed to work more effectively with parents individually and in groups. CHILD AND FAMILY STUDIES (12 CREDITS) ELECTIVE COURSES (3 CREDITS) with support from their academic advisor. MASTERS DEGREE PROGRAMS EDUCATION PROGRAMS (FOR ASTATE LICENSE/ CREDENTIAL) GRADUATE EDUCATOR PREPARATION AT WHEELOCK COLLEGE. underlie the work of professionals involved with children, families and communities. These professional characteristics include commitment to a principled, democratic, multi-racial and multicultural society; knowledge of the historical and philosophical roots of care and education and family support; and dedication to working with parents as the child s first teachers and support. Students will increase their knowledge of human development, and research methods, as well as develop skills to work effectively with children and families from diverse backgrounds. Students in Education will also learn curricular design, instructional and assessment strategies, subject matter, and how to critically evaluate their own teaching philosophies. Students in Child Life will learn how to support the psychological and developmental needs of children and families, and will develop skills as child development specialists, interdisciplinary team members and health educators. Each program in this school consists of core courses in human development, multiculturalism, and research, a practicum, field experience or internship, programspecific courses and, in some cases, electives. Students work closely with an academic advisor during their experience at Wheelock. Students may pursue study on a full-time

4 or part-time basis, except during the semesters of supervised practica when full-time enrollment is necessary in most programs. Entry level career opportunities in education include early childhood, elementary, or special needs teachers for a variety of public and private settings (including school-age middle schools, as well as afterschool programs in public schools and agencies). An advanced Teacher of Reading program is offered for experienced teachers who wish to become reading specialists or who want more experience in this area as a classroom teacher. 101 Early Childhood. Two initial level masters degrees are offered by the Early Childhood Department that focus on birth through age eight and offer different emphasis and credentials for teaching practice.

A third choice in Early Childhood is the Masters in Early Care and Education Continuing Practitioner Program which offers initial level continued studies in early care, designed for two groups: newly licensed teachers at the primary level (PreK-2), practice, and who want to combine continued early childhood studies with several courses in another area (ESL, Reading, or Special Education) that will contribute to the advancement of their Initial license to the Professional level after they have taught for three or more years and completed other state requirements. The second group is experienced early care practitioners who have not completed an initial level program of study in their field. Elementary and Special Education. The integrated program meets all requirements Associations (AECI and CEC), and includes a 12-credit cluster in Special Education that is approved to advance an Initial Early Childhood, Elementary, or English as a Second Language license to the Professional level when other state requirements for teaching experience and mentoring have been met. Teacher of Reading.
