The University of Michigan is pleased to partner with the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation on the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowship.
The program prepares exemplary secondary teachers in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics to serve diverse learners in urban settings.
The WKKF-WW Michigan Teaching Fellowship curriculum at UM is research-based, drawing upon the expertise of nationally-renowned faculty in the academic disciplines and in the field of education. Many of our Fellows are individuals who have majored in or have strong professional experience in math or science, and have the desire to understand how to engage students in exploring these subjects using best practices in pedagogy and learning.
Fellows develop disciplinary knowledge and skills needed to attend to and build upon diverse pupils’ ideas, interpretations, and solutions required for the complex environment of twenty-first century schools.
Fellows participate in the Secondary Master of Arts with Certification (MAC) program at the UM. The MAC program is a rigorous graduate-level teacher education program that is complemented by a yearlong clinical experience. As a Secondary MAC Teaching Intern, the Fellows work with students in grades six through 12, in either Ypsilanti or Detroit public school classrooms. In one full year, spring to summer, the Woodrow Wilson Fellows complete coursework for a master’s degree in education. At the end of the first year, those who meet the state requirements are recommended for the Michigan provisional teaching certificate. Fellows are supported after graduation with mentoring and professional development throughout the first three years of their teaching.
