Rhode Island College's Middle Level Education program is offering an off-campus, Certificate of Graduate Study course sequence for certified elementary and secondary teachers. This is a fast-track rout (four courses, from January-December 2018) that follows a cohort model and includes practicum hours in each course. Because the cohort takes place off campus, the classes are easy to get to and are offered at a discount. Admission to the program is required for participation in the cohort. The deadline for applications is December 15, 2017 to allow for a January 13, 2018 start. Please see the cohort website for additional information and for the link to the application: https://sites.google.com/site/fsehdoffcampus/middle-level-spring-2018.
