Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree program in Secondary Education
American Universityıs School of Education, Teaching and Health (SETH) and
the Departments of Mathematics & Statistics and Environment Science in
partnership with The Carnegie Institution of Washington's Carnegie Academy
of Science Education (CASE) have launched From the Laboratory to the
Classroom (Lab2Class) in Washington, DC.
The goal of Lab2Class is to ensure excellence in science and mathematics
teaching in DC public and public charter middle and high schools by
recruiting, training, and retaining talented science and mathematics
teachers who commit to teaching in DC schools for a four-year period.
The first cohort of Lab2Class Fellows will start in the Summer of 2013.
These cohorts are generously funded through a grant from the National
Science Foundation's Teaching Fellowships track of the Robert Noyce
Teacher Scholarship Program and the Toyota USA Foundation.
Lab2Class recruits fellows who demonstrate both science or mathematical
talent and a strong commitment to the teaching profession and service in
DC. Fellows participate in SETH's Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree
program in Secondary Education: Science or Mathematics. After completion
of the MAT program, fellows teach math or science in DC schools for at
least four years.
