The B.A. in Middle-Level Education provides students with the knowledge, skills, and disposition to be successful teachers in grades 5-8. Students will design curricula based on inquiry, authentic literacy, and standards. Students will work collaboratively with a middle grades team, parents, the school, and the local community.
Students can earn an endorsement from a minimum of one discipline: Social Studies, Math, Science, and/or Language Arts. Students must complete two clinical experiences in grades 5-8 classrooms and full-time student teaching in their endorsement area for 16 weeks.
The program is nationally accredited by the Association for Middle-Level Education.
Through the B.A. in Middle-Level Education, students qualify for the Illinois Middle-Grade Professional Educator License to teach in their endorsement area(s). Students will have the skills needed to create dynamic, critical, and developmentally responsive middle-grade classrooms.
