Teacher candidates must maintain a total GPA of 3.0 or higher throughout the program and to qualify for student teaching. For details on admission and retention requirements for teaching majors and teaching minors, see Educator Preparation Program (EPP) Requirements in the undergraduate catalog.

Program Outcomes

Competency in English Language and Literature

English teaching majors are required to meet all program and course outcomes for the English BA, and they demonstrate their disciplinary competency by taking the national standardized Praxis exam, "English Language Arts: Content and Analysis."

Instructional Design and Reflection for Improvement

English Teaching graduates will be able to design and implement several weeks of instruction, write complete lesson plans for delivering that instruction, and reflect in writing on the effectiveness of their plans and delivered instruction. These plans will reflect sound pedagogical understanding (including strong objectives, appropriate measures of learning, and learning activities that are meaningful and adapted to the needs of diverse students).

The work will be one of the capstone requirements in ENGL 377 and 379.
