Help students in the middle grades gain knowledge, develop reason and judgment skills, and mature in preparation for a prosperous, healthy life.
BUILDING STRONG FOUNDATIONS FOR FUTURE EXCELLENCE
Middle grades education majors study how to provide the instruction, mentoring, advisement, and front-line counseling to young as the foundation for success as they prepare for high school.
During the most recent academic year, 100% of FVSU education graduates passed the state certification exam, and 90% found teaching positions, were enrolled in graduate school or became gainfully employed in careers related to education within one month of graduating.
In addition to classroom work, FVSU education majors engage in a field experience, working with practicing teachers in their classrooms to plan, implement, assess, and reflect on instructional methods, procedures, and principles. This includes lesson planning, assessing, evaluating, grading, conducting case studies, and developing effective classroom management strategies.
The college is committed to the preparation of “proficient educators” who are competent in content, pedagogy, and technology, as well as educators who possess a caring disposition while understanding and appreciating diversity.
The program is administered through the College of Education.
