The Master of Arts in Teaching: An Idea Whose Time Has Come Again.
This pamphlet takes a tested Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program from the recent past and relates it to today's circumstances and contexts. The MAT program recruits outstanding liberal arts graduates who have completed little or no undergraduate course work in education and places them in a graduate program that requires the successful completion of advanced study in the academic discipline to be taught, professional education classes, and a clinical-internship program teaching experience. The MAT format is described and its strengths and weaknesses are discussed. Suggestions are made for changes and improvements. (JD)
