About

The Elementary Education program from Lake Superior State University is highlighted by in-depth study in a subject major, subject concentration, or student-focused concentration, extended field experience in elementary school settings; and focused development of the knowledge and skills critical for effective teachers.

Overview

Elementary-level teacher certification in Michigan permits individuals to teach in self-contained classrooms at grade K - 8, and in all subjects at grades K - 5. Individuals may also qualify to teach the subjects of their academic major or minors in grades 6 - 8.

Elementary Education students from Lake Superior State University begin their studies with a focus on general education requirements, and an academic major or specific concentration. They complete the initial professional education coursework in their sophomore year, and apply for formal admission to the program at the end of that year. By that time, they will have also passed the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification Professional Readiness Examination.

Key facts

Upper level professional education coursework, along with the completion of the major or concentration, is the focus for the junior and senior years. Student teaching, a semester-long culminating experience, may be completed in the spring of the fourth year or fall of the fifth year, depending on the individual student's progress through the program. Generally, this student teaching experience will be in the Eastern Upper Peninsula or in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The Michigan Test for Teacher Certification Elementary Education tests must be passed prior to beginning student teaching.
