Middle Childhood Generalist (grades 4-6) Endorsement
Teachers with a middle childhood (4-9) license or currently working on a middle childhood license can obtain an endorsement in two additional concentration areas beyond their current licensure by completing the required coursework in those areas. All concentrations are available at the post-baccalaureate level.
The Middle Childhood Generalist endorsement is valid for teaching all core academic content areas in grades four, five, and six. The endorsement may be added to a middle childhood license with two concentration areas upon evidence of completion of an additional six semester hours of study in each of the content areas to be added, aligned with the Common Core State Standards and the state academic content standards; evidence of preparation in pedagogy in each of the additional content areas; and successful completion of the prescribed examination.
The Middle Childhood Generalist Endorsement will offer current and practicing teachers additional employment prospects in teaching grades 4-6 in self-contained elementary school classrooms.
