Urban Teaching

Reflecting the diversity of academic knowledge and methods relevant to teaching, the Urban Teaching minor combines courses and faculty from several departments to prepare students for NYS Teacher Certification in one of two areas. 

 

Childhood Education (Grades 1-6)    Adolescent Education (Grades 7-12)

 

  • For BC students, this track is a minor in Urban Teaching, and for GS and CC it is a Special Concentration in Urban Teaching

  • To participate in the Urban Teaching Track and be eligible for certification, students must apply to the program and be accepted

  • Studets interested in teaching in STEM fields should consider the Barnard Noyce Teacher Scholars Program for STEM Education

  • Provide high quality, engaging curriculum for all learners

  • Care about their students and convey through their actions their belief that all students can learn

  • Inspire in their students a passion for learning and a capacity to act in the world
