Curriculum & Instruction

The School of Education is taking applications for the Curriculum and Instruction Program in our master’s degree in education. This program is designed to support school-based educators in developing advanced knowledge and skill with research-based practices necessary to promote K- 12 students’ development of the multiple literacies needed to meet the demands of the 21st century. A program emphasis is to create a professional learning community of the school- and university-based members of the program, with a common goal of advancing teaching practice to foster student learning of the ambitious outcomes represented in California’s academic standards: CCSS-ELA, CCSS-Math, CA-NGSS.
