Overview

Key Features

Teachers will develop teaching and assessment skills through certification courses in the College of Education, and gain real world experience in the classroom through internship and practicums at area schools. Students who satisfactorily complete the program requirements also meet the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education teacher certification requirements for secondary social studies and may continue with a few more courses for a Social Studies - Secondary Education (9-12) program from University of Missouri–St. Louis .

Enrolling in the College of Education teacher preparation program actively and uniquely engages you throughout your studies in working with secondary students as they learn and develop in informal and formal learning settings. The College of Education recognizes that we prepare educators for a variety of roles and a variety of contexts (i.e. P-12 schools, youth serving organizations, museums, zoos, gardens, nature centers, after school programs, tutoring/mentoring programs, businesses, legislative offices, etc.) all of which impact student learning. We want to prepare community educators as well as P-12 classroom teachers who can provide relevance, application, and meaning to student learning in developmentally, socially, and culturally responsive ways. As a teacher candidate, you will work with students in youth serving agencies to support them in non-traditional settings. You will also gain valuable practical knowledge by applying university course content to interactions with young learners in academically focused content-based community agencies such the St. Louis Chess Club, Powder Valley, and many United Way agencies.
