All prospective teachers are required to take courses in certain areas of professional education. A grade of "C" or better is required in all professional education courses. (A "C-" is not acceptable.) (See "Teacher Education Program" for entrance requirements.)

A student must be admitted into the Teacher Education Program before enrolling in a methods class (EDSD 4XX or EDSD 4YY).

Secondary level endorsement will cover grades five through twelve for all applicants graduating from approved programs. Within the approved programs, emphasis must be placed on student growth and development, behavior, and reading and writing skills. Student teaching and observation periods when combined, must cover both 7-12 and 5-6 grade levels.
