Adam Weldai, G11, a graduate of the M.A.T. program in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Education, delivered this speech at the department’s graduation ceremony on May 22, 2011.
Here is one of the reasons Rodrigues believes the UTTC is a positive student teaching model:
Collaboration between university and school. This is more than just words. College seminars are taught at the school setting, and Tufts professors teach alongside school faculty during many of these seminar classes. The schools’ needs and the university’s mission are met through teamwork.
The Department of Education has created videos showcasing some of their students and programs. One documentary video focuses on graduate students of color who are enrolled in the Master of Arts in Teaching program, which is affiliated with various Boston public schools.
You will hear students discuss issues such as race, class, gender, inequality, and how these things intersect with education. Hopefully through this documentary, both potential students of color and faculty will be able to join with those students who are already going through the educational pipeline, to make social change, political change, and economic change, through education.
The department also filmed profiles of students in the School Psychology program, such as Lauren Marston (G’12).
