A residency-based model of teacher preparation
Heritage 105 prepares graduate candidates to become highly competent first year teachers who are able to successfully serve in high need schools. Graduates of the program are certified in K-8 education.
Candidates accepted into the program serve full-time in public school classrooms in collaboration with 2 other candidates and a Core Teacher. This team is responsible and accountable for the academic growth of the learners in the classroom. One day a week candidates attend a full-day seminar dedicated to developing and refining content and pedagogical skills. Graduates serve one and a half years in the program.
Candidates who successfully completed the program will earn an MIT degree in education with certification endorsements in K-8 and English Language Learners (ELL). The 36 credit program is completed in three semesters.
