Narrative Summary

If individual course changes are part of an overall plan for change within the discipline's curriculum, please summarize the intent of the changes in the space below. Use additional sheets as needed.

MN Board of Teaching (BOT) restructure of the secondary teaching license to include middle school necessitates the course revisions and changes.

 

Financial Implications

Are there any financial or staffing implications of this proposal? If so, explain.

Yes. Increase in salaries to methods instructors because of increase in credits taught/required. Additional methods teachers are required in new licensure areas. Inclusion of middle school in both elementary and secondary license areas requires an additional education faculty member.
