Reference - Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction
Thank you for agreeing to be a reference for a candidate applying for admission to the Salish Kootenai College Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction Degree Program. The Master of Education is a rigorous 15 month program designed for educators who are actively teaching or working in an education related field.  There are two distinct strands: Integrative Indigenous Education and Literacy, Equity, and Excellence.

The Integrative Indigenous Education emphasis focuses on increasing our ability to create community-centered educational experiences that integrate Indigenous cultures and languages in classroom and community settings, including but not limited to the effective integration of Indian Education for All.

The Literacy, Equity, and Excellence emphasis focuses on equity and high expectations using a four part framework that pervasively integrates concepts, content, and literacy skills while deepening understanding of unique contexts -including Tribal communities. It leads to a K-12 Reading Endorsement in Montana. Both strands support the development of master educators able to support children in unique and powerful ways.

Your thoughtful response to the following questions and your comments will help us better understand the applicant, their strengths, challenges and current potential to thrive and graduate from this program.
