Summer session at Dordt College

July 7, 2003

On Monday, July 7, the Dordt College Graduate Education program began its summer on-campus session.

A total of 63 students from Washington, California, Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin, New York and Ontario, Canada are enrolled in the program this year.

The Dordt College master of education degree is a 10 course, 30 semester-hour program with a concentration in curriculum and instruction. It provides practical, hands-on instruction for the elementary or secondary teacher who wants to learn more about what it means to teach in a distinctively Christian manner.

This non-traditional program is designed for in-service teachers who wish to complete a master's degree while remaining in the classroom. Participants attend classes for three to four summers, spending minimal time away from home. Each course consists of two phases, a pre-campus phase and an on-campus phase. The pre-campus phase involves preparation, such as reading assignments, prior to coming to campus. Each course requires only one week on campus during the month of July. In addition to on-campus courses, online courses and independent studies hours are also available.

This year’s courses include Advanced Educational Psychology, Literacy in K-12 Education, Constructing Thematic Units, Introduction to Graduate Research, Current Issues in Education, Middle School Curriculum and Instruction, Structuring School Curriculum and mplementing Instructional Strategies.
