Degree Requirements for Elementary & Middle Years Teacher Education

Graduates of the elementary & middle years option focus their preparation on teaching students in K-Grade 8.

Teacher candidates in the elementary & middle years option are encouraged to develop a disposition toward inquiry and research through course work, inquiry seminars, and practicum experiences. Strands woven throughout the program include: 1) inquiry and dialogical understanding; 2) curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment; 3) diversity, social justice, and aboriginal perspectives; 4) language, literacies, and cultures; and 5) field experiences. Field experiences occur in K-Grade 8 settings as well as in alternate school settings, and/or community-based field contexts, such as museums, art galleries, rural, and international schools.
