American College of Education, a leading provider of online graduate programs for educators, now offers a new master’s degree in teaching English learners for students seeking an advanced degree in the education profession. “We are excited to add this new degree program, which is designed to prepare educators to support and advocate for English language learners in a variety of school settings,” announced Lee Tincher, academic dean of American College of Education.
“As the population of English language learners continues to expand, there is a growing need for educators that are not only knowledgeable and adept at designing and implementing instruction for these students, but that are also willing and able to take on leadership roles and work collaboratively with their colleagues, student families, and the school community,” she added. Teachers who graduate with this new master’s degree will be prepared to successfully demonstrate English as a New Language requirements established by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).
“Across the nation, more and more school districts and educational settings are requiring teachers to have credentials in supporting English language learners,” said Tincher. “We added this new master’s degree to our ACE programs in order to prepare educators to become leaders in supporting and advocating for the diverse students that come to their classrooms each year.”
