The Master of Arts in Teaching English Language Arts is designed to enhance the professional knowledge and teaching skills of practicing teachers from elementary through community college who are interested in supporting their students’ achievement in literacy. The broad-based program may combine work from several university resources, including courses in English, Literacy Education, and the Boise State Writing Project. The program works within the teacher’s current instructional context to connect research and theory in literacy learning with effective classroom teaching practices.
Three major strands in the program requirements (writing/composing, reading/literature, language) reflect the three areas of concentration required by the national standards for English language arts teachers including the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and required by the National Professional Board of Teaching Standards (NPBTS).
