About this course
This program views teachers as leaders and researchers, and classrooms as laboratories for learning communities. It weaves emphasis on research, effective use of technology, culturally responsive teaching and broad respect for diversity and inclusion throughout the graduate student experience — from entry to the program to the Capstone Research Project.
Capital believes the best learning occurs with high-impact practices. So your professors will engage you in applied research and data analysis to deepen professional teaching practice, extend teaching skills and competencies and enhance learning outcomes. Working with your graduate faculty member, you will design and conduct an applied research project or thesis. With cross-curricular training through Capital MBA courses, you will earn a well-rounded degree and become a better teacher and leader. One option within the program even allows you to earn your TESOL Endorsement (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) to make you even more marketable with an endorsement and a master’s degree. This program aligns with National Board Certification requirements and the Ohio Master Teacher Framework.
