The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers programs leading to a degree and/or licensure in three areas: Early Childhood Education (Pre-K- Grade Four), Middle Level Education (Grade Four-Grade Eight), and Secondary Education (Grade Seven-Grade Twelve).

Early Childhood Education1

The Early Childhood Education program meets the needs of today’s children building on the common core of knowledge, performance, and dispositions needed for early childhood professional educators.

There are three stages in the Bachelor of Science Early Childhood Degree program. Teacher candidates begin the first stage by taking general education requirements and are introduced to basic concepts, theory and practices in early childhood courses.

During the second stage teacher candidates complete general education requirements and take courses specifically designed to prepare them for the profession. Admission requires minimum scores as determined by the Arkansas State Board of Education on the Praxis I; a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.50 on all college work attempted with no grade below “C” (including work from other colleges and universities); and beginning the development of a portfolio which must include a philosophy and documented evidence of observations of young children.

During the third stage of the early childhood program, teacher candidates are placed in an appropriate environment for their internship. Admission to this stage requires a minimum grade point average of 2.50 with no grade below “C” in all courses and a satisfactory score on the licensure exam as established by the Arkansas Department of Education. Teacher candidates should make application for admission to the internship for the spring semester by October 1, or the fall semester by March 1.

1Information regarding the Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education is listed under the College of Professional Studies and Community Outreach.

Middle Level Education

The Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence degree exists to provide quality preservice educational programs and services in preparation for teaching grades 4-8. The program prepares and nurtures interdisciplinary teachers who reflect content knowledge as well as facilitate creative talents.

The program is designed around a conceptual framework which organizes learning expectations and experience into manageable discipline-specific strands including: professional and pedagogical knowledge, knowledge of the student, developmentally appropriate and effective practices, knowledge of integrated disciplines, global and cultural perspectives, technology, and a liberal arts and science background. The teaching candidate entering the middle-level program must complete an integrated math/science or English/social studies curriculum.

The first stage of the middle level program is a pre-professional program and admission to this stage does not constitute approval for admission to the professional program in teacher education. Stage II is the professional stage of the preparation program. Teacher candidates must satisfactorily complete the requirements of the first stage, have a cumulative grade point average of 2.50 on all coursework, completion of English composition courses, an oral communication course, a college-level mathematics course, and completion of MLED 2003 with grades of "C" or higher. Competence in oral and written grammar will be assessed. Teacher candidates must submit scores on Praxis I (PPST) that meet or exceed the levels established by the Arkansas Department of Education.

After satisfying all of the requirements at this level, the teacher candidate will apply for internship. Admission to internship requires completion of all professional education courses, senior standing, satisfactory completion of all prerequisites listed in the course descriptions, a minimum grade of “C” in all courses with a cumulative grade point average of 2.50, and the minimum score on the licensure examination as required by the Arkansas Department of Education.

Teacher candidates should make application for admission to the internship for the spring semester by October 1 or for the fall semester by March 1. Teacher candidates must present scores on the appropriate licensure examination as directed by the Arkansas Department of Education.

Secondary Education

The secondary education curriculum is designed to prepare teacher candidates for teaching careers at the junior high school and senior high school levels. Teacher candidates completing the NCATE approved program in secondary education will qualify for licensure in an area appropriate to their major field. The program recognizes three important components in the education of a prospective teacher: a strong general education, an in-depth knowledge in a selected teaching field, and a knowledge of the school, adolescents, and the teaching-learning process.

The unit’s conceptual framework is Professionals for the Future. The framework emphasizes the concepts of teacher as instructional leader, reflective decision-maker, and problem solver who has knowledge of the teacher candidate, a strong content and pedagogical knowledge, a commitment to their profession, and a desire to continue their development.

Teacher candidates preparing to teach in secondary schools must complete the courses required for specialization in the appropriate curriculum, see “Curriculum in Secondary Education”.

Teacher candidates desiring entrance to the teacher education program in secondary education should apply for admission to Stage II during the second semester of their sophomore year. Teacher candidates who are admitted to Stage II of the teacher education program for secondary teachers enroll jointly in course work for their degree specialization and course work in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. For example, teacher candidates planning to teach mathematics enroll in the math department and the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. The requirements of both departments must be satisfied.

Teacher candidates should make application for admission to internship for the spring semester by October 1 and for the fall semester by March 1. Teacher candidates must present scores on the Praxis II specialty area test equal to or greater than the state-established level in order to be approved for internship. Any questions concerning internship placement should be addressed to the Director of Teacher Education Student Services located in Crabaugh 109.

Professional requirements for the secondary education program include SEED 2002; SEED 3702, SEED 4503, SEED 4556, and SEED 4809 or SEED 4909. SEED 2002, SEED 3702 and SEED 4556 must be completed prior to internship. Secondary teacher education candidates enrolling in internship should register for SEED 4503 and either SEED 4809 or SEED 4909. In addition to the course requirements specified, the state also requires that the applicants for an Arkansas teaching license supply a copy of his/her score on the Praxis II (Principles of Learning and Teaching, if applicable and Specialty Area Tests) and the criminal background check as required by Act 1310. The Specialty Area Test is required for entry into internship. The Principles of Learning and Teaching, if applicable, may be completed during internship (see “Requirements for Teacher Licensure”).

Internship

Internship is the capstone of the teacher preparation program. Placements are the responsibility of the College of Education and are selected on the basis of providing the best experience available for the teacher candidate.

The assignments require full day experiences for the semester. Teacher candidates should make plans with these requirements in mind.

Praxis II

All candidates for licensure must meet minimum scores as required by Arkansas Department of Education on the Principles of Learning and Teaching, if applicable and the appropriate specialty area test.
