See instructions given in separate document.

 

I. Introductory Statement:

This discipline is in the Division of Education. The secondary education program leads to Minnesota licensure either as a teacher of grades 7 K through 12 or 5 through 12 in specified liberal arts disciplines. A separate admissions process must be completed and admission granted before students can enroll in courses in this program.

 

Currently UMM is approved to recommend teaching licensure for the following majors or fields: studio art, earth science (geology), English, French, German, life science (biology), mathematics, music, physical science (chemistry, physics), social science, Spanish, speech communication, speech-theatre, and theatre arts. Individuals interested in teaching should inquire at the Division of Education office for the current list of approved majors and minors at the time they select a teaching field.

Students planning to seek Minnesota teaching licensure at the secondary school level must complete the secondary teacher education program as well as requirements for teacher preparation listed under the discipline(s) of their majors(s) and minor(s).

II. Objectives:

Objectives—Coursework in secondary education is designed to meet standards of effective practice required for licensure and provide prospective teachers with opportunities to understand central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of disciplines taught in the middle and secondary school; understand how children and adolescents learn and develop, individual and group motivation and behavior, and diversity among learners; create instructional opportunities adapted to learners from diverse cultural backgrounds and with exceptionalities; use instructional strategies that reflect personal knowledge of effective verbal, nonverbal, and communication techniques and encourage development of critical thinking, problem solving, and performance skills; understand and use formal and informal methods of student assessment; plan and manage instruction and engage in reflection and self-assessment; and collaborate with parents/guardians, families, school colleagues, and the community in an ethical manner.

Students seeking licensure must have a major, a bachelor’s degree, and have completed licensure requirements in the area(s) in which licensure is sought. UMM is approved to recommend teaching licensure in the following fields: business (5-12), chemistry (5-12), communication arts & literature (5-12), dance & theatre arts (K-12), earth and space science (5-12), French (K-12), German (K-12), instrumental music (K-12), life science (5-12), mathematics (5-12), physics (5-12), social studies (5-12), Spanish (K-12), visual arts (K-12), and vocal music (K-12).

Students planning to seek Minnesota teaching licensure at the middle and secondary school level must complete licensure requirements in the discipline(s) of the subject(s) they intend to teach, the middle and secondary teacher education program, and state and federally mandated examinations for new teachers. A minimum GPA of 2.50 overall, and in required licensure area(s) and education courses is required. All courses required for teaching licensure in middle and secondary education (discipline, professional education, or other courses) must be completed with a grade of C- or higher.
