It takes a special kind of person to teach children ages 8 to 14 — someone who’s energetic, passionate and who wants to make a difference. If that describes you, consider majoring in middle childhood education at The University of Toledo.
The Middle Childhood Education - Grades 4-9 program of The University of Toledo educates undergraduates in the best practices and theories for teaching children in grades 4-9. UToledo's accredited program explores critical issues, such as literacy, technology and multicultural perspectives.
Students choose two of the following specialties: reading and language arts, mathematics, science or social studies. For two years, they focus on these areas and other core education courses. During their final two years, they spend four semesters working with and learning from outstanding educators in local classrooms.
