About

As a Middle School Teacher Education major from Champlain College, you'll dive deeply into curriculum design, learn specific strategies for integrating technology and begin to create your professional portfolio. 

Overview

Teaching middle school students is a positive and rewarding teaching experience. The rapid intellectual and physical development that happens between 10 and 15 years of age makes being an educator of pre-adolescents particularly exciting.

It takes a very special educator to appreciate the unique age and stage of these students and philosophically, and we believe teachers need specialized training to optimize the potential of Middle School learners. You'll also get grounding in adolescent psychology and learning theory while spending an unprecedented amount of time working in middle school classrooms.

Engage From Both Sides of the Classroom

As a Middle School Teacher Education major from Champlain College, you'll take classes in Adolescent Psychology, Learning Theory and other education topics during your first semester through our Upside-Down Curriculum. You'll complete supervised field experiences in area middle and high schools that correlate with each semester's coursework, then spend the final semester of your senior year student teaching under the support and direction of a classroom teacher and a Champlain College instructor. Explore the classes you'll take at Champlain.

Explore Various Teaching Environments

Vermont offers diverse educational settings, including rural, small-town and urban, so you will experience a broad range of learning environments spending upward of 30 hours in the field in your first year of the program. Working closely with community partners, you'll have the opportunity to identify local issues that can be addressed through service learning projects.

Build a Community

Learn in small class-sizes from our education faculty, including classroom teachers, special educators, curriculum area specialists and school leaders. You'll create strong personal relationships with your professors and other education majors-creating the ideal environment to learn how to be a teacher. Meet your professors.

Discover Diverse Cultures and Change the World

As part of the curriculum you'll develop, implement and evaluate a project to make a difference in a local educational or youth-serving organization. You'll have the option to work with English Language Learners (ELLs) to gain valuable new perspectives that will strengthen your abilities as a teacher. You'll also be challenged to think critically, develop global awareness and learn how to be responsive to different ways of thinking and learning.

You may also choose to further explore related concepts of equality, access and human rights through our Social Justice minor. Learn more about our college-wide minors.

Study Abroad

The curriculum is designed to support a semester of optional international study. You can choose to take your international study at our campus in Montreal, Canada, or in Dublin, Ireland, where you will have the opportunity to intern in Irish classrooms. Or study virtually anywhere in the world through one of our third-party programs, such as Auckland, New Zealand and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
