Grad Ed

It’s summer vacation time for most teachers and students, but at Dordt College 63 people are currently taking summer courses, either on- campus or online.

Most are elementary or high school teachers, who are using their summer vacation to pursue a Master of Education degree. Dordt’s graduate-level program enables participants to earn their advanced degree in as few as three summers. Most courses consist of advance preparation (e.g., reading assignments) followed by one week on campus during the month of July to complete courses.

The Dordt College Master of Education degree is a 10 course, 30 semester-hour program with a concentration in curriculum and instruction. This year a class is also being offered at Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Courses offered this year include Practicum in Curriculum and Instruction; The Middle Level Child; Advanced Educational Psychology; Enhancing Learning with Technology; Spiritual Formation in the Classroom; Current Issues in Education; Implementing Instructional Strategies; Differentiated Strategies, When One Size Doesn’t Fit All; Research Methods in Education; Structuring School Curriculum; and Constructing Thematic Units.

The Dordt College Master of Education Program is approved by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and the Iowa Department of Education. Classes offered also meet continuing education requirements for professional development.
