Curriculum for a Teaching Field Endorsement in English Education 5-9

The English education 5-9 program is intended primarily for students preparing to teach in middle schools. This endorsement is offered only as an add-on to the K-6 elementary program or to any of the secondary programs. In addition to the course work required for the 5-9 specialization, all prospective student teachers must make a satisfactory grade on the English competency exam and participate in at least TWO laboratory activities in language arts—writing for a University publication (newspaper, literary magazine), taking part in forensic activities, taking part in theatrical activities, working in the University Writing Center, taking Practicum in English, or participating in some other activity approved in advance by the advisor and the department chair.
