English Education

Assistant Professor Kristine Still Ph.D

Available programs in secondary education are intended to prepare candidates for teaching adolescents from ages 12 through 21. Taken as a whole, these programs focus on the nature and needs of young adults as they particularly relate to the design, delivery, and evaluation of culturally and developmentally responsive instruction.

Throughout each program, the acquisition of professional knowledge and skills is aided by reflective practice and inquiry. To that end, the observation of secondary school students and settings accompanies relevant study, is followed by on-site practice, and culminates in supervised student teaching. In addition, this program provides for discipline-specific preparation in the field of English Education/ integrated language arts, 7-12.
