Teaching of English-Secondary Education
Students interested in teaching English in the middle grades and/or at the high school level need to be aware that advanced planning is crucial. The Secondary Education option is actually considered a “minor” and is offered through the College of Education by application only. After completing a variety of prerequisites, students generally apply in February of their sophomore year to start the minor their junior year. Adva Waranyuwat is the director of Secondary Education programs within the College of LAS. Her office provides info sessions periodically during the school year. For additional information, please contact Adva at 333-2800, or email her at email@example.com. For the most current information about Secondary Education please visit the Secondary Education Programs Wiki.
Students in the “TOE” option (teaching of English) work through a modified English literature curriculum while completing a variety of curriculum and instruction courses. The spring term of senior year is reserved for student teaching which means all coursework must be completed in seven semesters (and summers if necessary). Due to the complexity of course sequencing and scheduling, students interested in this option need to seek advising early and often through both advising offices.
