Gallaudet: Department of Education

Gallaudet: Department of Education "Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire." -William Yeats

Undergraduate Programs: The Department of Education offers seven undergraduate teacher preparation programs: early childhood education (ECE), elementary education, secondary Biology education, secondary English education, secondary mathematics education, secondary social studies education, and K-12 physical education. Each of these programs lead to recommendation for licensure in the District of Columbia, with interstate reciprocity in a number of states. Licensure in general education (i.e., ECE, Elementary, and Secondary Education) is required by many programs prior to study at the graduate level in fields such as education of deaf students and other areas of special education. Students who graduate from an Undergraduate Education program who are interested in licensure in Deaf Education may be eligible for the Masters of Arts in Deaf Education. This program requires one year and one summer of courses, and an on-the-job internship. Graduate Programs The department today offers graduate and postgraduate programs to prepare professional personnel to work with all ages of deaf and hard of hearing children in various kinds of educational programs and settings. Programs are designed to meet students' individual needs and interests and are open to hearing, deaf, and hard of hearing individuals. Both coursework and practicum experiences are important preparation components. All programs involve exposure to professional organizations, agencies, and educational facilities related to the education of deaf and hard of hearing students, and provide for involvement in schools and classes. The department strongly recommends that students have both a car and a computer in order to benefit fully from course work and field experiences. Certificate Programs There are two certificate programs. The Certificate in Education of Disabled Children is an online certificate program. The Certificate in Bilingual Education is a hybrid, with the majority of classes being offered online, and two weeks during the summer are required on campus.

Mission: The Department of Education established in 1891, is an ASL/English bilingual, diverse, multicultural learning community devoted to preparing teachers and teacher educators as reflective change agents promoting the intellectual, linguistic, and social potential of deaf and hard-of-hearing children and youth. In compliance with program accreditation, licensure and certification requirements, and state and federal mandates for high quality teacher preparation and the dissemination of research-based educational practices, the mission of the Gallaudet University Department of Education is to nurture and mentor pre- and in-service teachers, teacher educators, clinical supervisors, educational leaders, and classroom-based agents for change. Toward this end, roles and responsibilities of Department faculty members include: (1) the art and craft of teaching, including the modeling of educational content, strategies, and performance assessment, student advisement, and curriculum building and revision; (2) research and the dissemination of knowledge through publication, and other creative endeavors; and (3) a commitment to service through a variety of activities at local, national and international levels.

#EDUSUMMERPLANS

Meredith is a second-year Early Childhood and Deaf Education graduate student who has moved back to Atlanta, just an hour from where she grew up, in anticipation for her final internship at Atlanta Area School for the Deaf this Fall.

She accepted a research position for the summer with the Center on Literacy and Deafness (CLAD) at Georgia State University in Atlanta; the research focus is documenting the strategies educators use during English literacy instruction in 1st and 2nd-grade D/HoH classrooms. A BIG shoutout to Dr. Heather Zimmerman who taught Intro to Research for making research not so scary and something she says she is thrilled to be a part of.

When she is not coding and documenting for research, Meredith is spending her summer as a popsicle slinger all over the city with King of Pops. A great way to beat the 'Hot-lanta' heat!

If you're in Atlanta this summer, be sure to grab a popsicle from Meredith! #handswaving #GUDeptofEd
