A New Ed School Breaking Old Models

City Teaching Alliance and American University have partnered to deliver a curriculum that not only provides a grounding in high-quality K-12 instruction, but also teaches the importance of understanding and appreciating a child’s community and culture. American’s professors, selected for their student-centered approach to learning and experience in urban public education, deliver courses including “Race, Culture, and Equity in Urban Education” and “Trauma Informed Teaching Practices.”

Serve directly with nonprofit organizations

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs, made up of three primary programs that each take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement. Members commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more.
