Why Carroll?

The Value of a Learning Community Model

The advanced teaching and learning programs are delivered through a learning community. Participants typically meet together one weekend per month throughout the program. Interacting with a group of peers at periodic intervals provides students time and space to examine issues thoughtfully and collaboratively – creating a community of learning that’s self-sustaining. Each cohort is co-facilitated by two instructors who follow the program through its entirety.

Master of Education Degree Concentrations

This unique program allows educators to choose what programs will best serve their professional learning needs. Customize your path to earning your M.Ed. in Literacy by combining the Reading Teacher License and the Reading Specialist License or a M.Ed in Teaching and Learning by combining any of the other two certificate/license options below.

Reading Teacher License

The reading teacher program offers a supportive and interactive environment for current classroom teachers to broaden their understanding and skills related to research-based reading assessment, evaluation and instruction. Successful completion of this 15-credit program and the Foundations of Reading exam lead to a Wisconsin Reading Teacher License.

Reading Specialist License

The reading specialist program at Carroll University extends the reading teacher license for educators wishing to pursue additional expertise in literacy assessment, instruction and leadership. The program reflects the Wisconsin Administrator (WA) and the International Literacy Association (ILA) Standards and leads to the credentials for an administrative license.

K-8 Mathematics Certificate

K-8 Mathematics Certificate candidates at Carroll University develop an in-depth understanding of mathematics content, processes, and pedagogy appropriate for grades K-8. They engage in professional learning communities and develop leadership skills to support and facilitate effective mathematics instruction and professional growth in their schools and districts.

English as a Second Language License

The English as a second language program can be taken as a stand-alone five course program leading to DPI #1395 or combined with another certificate/license program for the Master of Education degree.

Instructional Coaching & Teacher Leadership Program

This program prepares exemplary educators as PK-12 teacher leaders, with a particular emphasis on instructional coaching. Major topics include instructional coaching, building professional relationships with staff, building educator and team capacity to support all students’ success, professional learning, and school change.
