Education Department in the Community

This year six new teachers at Hope High School in Providence are graduates of the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Brown and four current MAT students will be student teaching at Hope. Four of the eight newly hired teachers are from the MAT class of ’05. In further developments at the high school located near Brown, MAT faculty members met several times during the summer with Hope administration and faculty leaders to discuss ways of establishing an ongoing professional development relationship between Hope High School and the teacher education faculty at Brown. One initiative from that planning is a series of professional development workshops in the coming year that will be led by Senior Lecturer Eileen Landay. The theme of the workshops is methods and practices through which literacy can be promoted across the curriculum at the high school.
