Faculty - Course Descriptions

The College of Education at The University of Texas at Arlington offers certification and degree opportunities for persons interested in becoming Early Childhood-4th grade, middle-level, all-level, or secondary teachers and administrators.

The Department of Kinesiology http://www.uta.edu/catalog/departments/education/kinesiology is within the College of Education and offers three undergraduate degrees. The three degrees are the Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology Pedagogy degree with All-level teacher certification for individuals who wish to teach in the K - 12 setting, the Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science degree for individuals who wish to pursue a career in one of the Allied Health Sciences, and the Bachelor or Arts or Science degree in Athletic Training for those who wish to pursue a career in the prevention and care of athletic injuries. The Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training also offers All-level teacher certification as an option.

The State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) defines the certification levels as follows: Early Childhood-4th grade; Middle-level: 4th-8th grade; Secondary: 8th-12th grade; All-level: EC-12. UT Arlington emphasizes experiential learning models through field-based applications. Students spend a majority of time in public school classroom settings applying acquired content knowledge to learning situations with (1) public school students, (2) master public school teachers who serve as mentors, (3) principals and other school administrators who are instructional leaders, and (4) experienced university professors and instructors who provide the bridges from theory to application in today's diverse classrooms. In some cases, students may have additional experiences in private school settings.

Certification programs are designed to develop skilled and professionally competent teachers who have the ability to think critically and creatively. To acquire certification, teacher candidates must demonstrate mastery of the state-adopted Standards that relate to the following essentials for effective teaching:

Candidates for certification must actively demonstrate proficiency in the above essentials through assessment strategies such as individual portfolios, reflective journals and other performance-based assessments.

Non-degreed candidates seeking teacher certification must choose an appropriate academic major and earn a baccalaureate degree in addition to completing certification requirements. The College of Education offers the following degree options:

Bachelor's of Arts degree in Child Studies leading to certification for Early Childhood - 4th grade or Early Childhood - 4th grade Bilingual Generalist. These degrees are for community college students who transfer under specific articulation agreements.

Bachelor's of Arts or a Bachelor's of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with the following certification options: Early Childhood - 4th grade, Early Childhood - 4th grade Bilingual Generalist, Middle-level Generalist, Middle-level Math/Science, or Middle-level English Language Arts and Reading/Social Studies.

Students interested in teaching certification for secondary level (grades 8-12) must select a major in an academic content area which is taught in the secondary schools. The following areas are available for 8-12 certification: history, English language arts and reading, science, life science, physical science, mathematics, chemistry, speech and journalism. The following areas are available for 6-12 certification: Spanish, German and French. All-level certification programs are available in music, art and physical education. A list of content area academic advisors is available on the College of Education Web site.

Candidates successfully completing all certification program requirements are recommended for certification in Texas to the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) by the College of Education.

Please note: As changes in certification programs become necessary to meet new SBEC standards, the College of Education will make every effort to prepare students to meet the standards. All course work must be completed within a specified time frame.

Please consult the College of Education Web site for current information on degree plans.

Degreed students may choose the post-baccalaureate program for initial teacher certification at the graduate level. See the College of Education Web site or a graduate academic advisor for details.

Internship (EC - 4th Grade and Bilingual EC - 4th Grade Certification)

Early Childhood - 4th Grade Internship is a semester that involves a block of courses centering around practicum experiences in a variety of settings where young children are served. Students will: (1) meet with instructors for discussions on course topics and classroom experiences, and (2) be assigned for a day in an approved Pre-K - 4 field setting for application of theory. Students may be offered opportunities for employment as early childhood teaching assistants in a kindergarten setting. Students should complete all core and support system courses prior to the Internship semester. All students must meet all requirements (GPA, THEA scores and prerequisite courses) prior to Internship. The Internship semester is in the fall, begins and ends with the public school district calendar and must immediately precede Residency.

Early Childhood - 4th Grade Residency is a full-time supervised and directed practice in an approved prekindergarten - 4th grade classroom. Students will have at least two placements. Residents who are employed as intern/resident early childhood teaching assistants in the fall will remain in a kindergarten setting for Residency. Residency is in the spring and begins and ends with the public school district calendar.

Inquiry Semester (Middle-level Certification)*The Inquiry Semester* is a one-semester experience for students seeking middle-level certification. It follows the university calendar. The Inquiry semester is in the Fall semester and must immediately precede the Residency semester.

To be eligible to enter the Inquiry semester for middle-level certification, the student must:

Middle-level certification candidates spend 144 hours in the field during the Inquiry semester. This involves two days (Tuesday and Thursday) each week in assigned schools working with supervising teachers, university faculty, and middle-level students. One-half of each day will be spent in the classroom working with the 4th-8th grade students under the supervision of the district teacher and university faculty. The other half of the day will be spent in classroom lecture.

Residency (Middle-level Certification)

Middle-level 4th-8th Grade Residency (EDML 4677) is the final semester where students repeat the sequence of field assignments just as in the Inquiry semester. Students spend 720 hours in the field for a full-time assignment.

Eligible secondary students must make application (uta.edu/coed/field experience/) for secondary internship before the deadline early in the semester preceding the internship assignment. Secondary intern applications are then reviewed by partner schools and students are subsequently assigned by the Office of Professional Development to appropriate school sites (based on student's area of specialization and the partner school's needs).

For purposes of determining eligibility for internship, all applicable grades, including those earned at other institutions, will be used in the calculation of grade point averages. Students are urged not to take more than 15 semester credit hours during the internship semester.

Students must attend a mandatory orientation to become familiar with the Internship Handbook and the Internship requirements prior to beginning the internship assignment.

Residency is considered full-time enrollment.
