Standards for the Structure of the English Teacher Education Program

 

The English Teacher Education Program models effective pedagogy in its content area courses and also provides opportunities for practice, analysis, reflection and implementation through courses in the Teacher Education sequence, including the elementary and secondary language arts methods courses, TE411 and TE 441.  Less directly, consideration of content curriculum design is implicit in the English courses EN335 and EN410, Children’s Literature in the Classroom and The Children’s Literary Tradition. Field experience among varied populations, in addition to classroom modeling and support, further enhances awareness of effective practices.

 

For English, as with other content areas, the Teacher Education component of the program is scrupulous in its adherence to the Michigan Curriculum Framework.  The English curriculum design is based on the standards of NCATE and other state and national guidelines. Close collaboration between the Teacher Education and English departments assures compliance with standards, and assures curriculum and cross-disciplinary integration and application.  Evaluation of teaching and learning is accomplished by various means, including portfolios, within the respective areas of English and Teacher Education, and candidate scores on certification tests indicate overall effectiveness.

Standards for Professionalism

 

Courses within the Teacher Education sequence specifically foster responsiveness to the diversity of backgrounds and abilities among learners.  The conduct of classes in the content area depends largely on discussion and interaction among diverse learners and thus practices and models principles of professional respect.  The understanding of cultural identity and diversity is a specific emphasis of Teacher Education courses, and can be said to be in fact the main business of English courses, such as EN231/232 and EN233/234,  the British and American literature surveys, and EN401-407, the literary period courses, in which consideration of culture in its diversity and historical and global context features prominently.

 

The combination and integration of the professional focus of Teacher Education courses, and the academic focus of the English program models and supports the appreciation and practice of effective literacy in various media and genres.  Literature courses such as those mentioned above investigate respective and cross-genre expression and consider issues of artistic standards or merit as a function of effectiveness.  All courses, especially those in English,  require the practical demonstration of effective literacy and are rigorous in their development of and requirement for critical thinking.  In English, the senior-level Critical Theory course, EN421,  engages and investigates a range of formal critical theories.

 

Both the Teacher Education and English programs model and promote  participation in  professional organizations and activities.  In English, the senior thesis course, EN490 aims at developing a professional quality publication and presentation, and students are provided with professional opportunities to feature their work.  Field  experiences through the Teacher Education curriculum, and activities within the English program provide a variety of collaborative and public and professional venues for the appreciation and understanding of Language Arts.

Standards for Knowledge of Content and Curriculum

The combination of professional Teacher Education and English programs models, instructs, and requires analysis and application of effective communication strategies in a variety of settings.  The English courses EN310 and EN320, Advanced Writing and Responding to Writing, specifically investigate the varieties of respective rhetorical positions between readers and writers.  These as well as required literature courses, by their nature, involve the understanding and application of the integration and variety of communication acts and processes.  Courses such as EN222, grammar, EN410, History of English,  as well as the foreign language requirements in the program investigate the history,  development and structure of language, processes of language acquisition and the diverse affects of culture on language, learning, and literacy.

 

The analysis of literature in its various forms, historical periods and cultural contexts constitutes the primary emphasis of the core of the English program.  Within this, consideration of key issues and themes both specific  and common to a variety of classic and contemporary literatures are examined, including issues of voice, authority, and the politics of marginality that apply to the contexts of gender and multicultural text production.    An understanding of intertextuality, the interrelationship and interdependence of texts over time and context is a feature of the historical approach of the English program  Literary development is presented as a function of history and culture, but

especially for teaching candidates takes into account the relationship between literature and cognitive and social development, such as is featured in the courses devoted to the understanding and application of Children’s literature, EN335 and EN410.  The appreciation and practice of the literary experience and of critical reading strategies and issues, including analysis of past and contemporary critical theory in the English course EN421, is designed to demonstrate the extension of the application of literature to the personal and public, ethical,  political and ontological world beyond the classroom.

 

The language and composition emphases of the English curriculum provide rigorous instruction, analysis, and practice in grammars and conventions, usage, purpose and process in both the reception and production of texts.  Advanced composition classes such as EN310 and 320, as well as literature classes in the core curriculum, place great emphasis on the understanding and application of issues of voice, style, purpose and context in a variety of communication settings, including the professional and artistic and in print and non-print media.

 

Over the course of their matriculation in the English program, candidates are expected to develop a mastery of fluent articulation and expression through the critical appreciation of literary craft and aesthetics and the extensive requirements for the demonstration of independent consideration and comprehension supported by research-based inquiry.  Teacher Education methods classes, such as TE4111 and TE421, provide methodologies for transferring content knowledge to application in the instruction of reading and writing.

Standards for Pedagogy (Instruction and Assessment)

 

Through the modeling provided by courses throughout the English program, the specific content of courses such as EN335 Children’s Literature in the Classroom and EN410 The Children’s Literary Tradition, and the courses provided by Teacher Education in learning environments and pedagogical methods and practices, candidates acquire the skills and abilities to select resources and materials and design goal-oriented and standard-based integrated language arts curricula that accommodate diverse learners and learning experiences.

 

These curricula, based on the modeling and instruction of the English-Teaching program, are implemented via practices designed to create a dynamic, interactive and collaborative learning environment in which open discussion , inquiry (including research),  and peer support encourage multiple perspectives and informed critical analyses.  The curricula and practices foster both group and individual development of language arts skills and understanding in  an environment where expectations are clear, learners can orient themselves within those expectations, and  acquired literacy is a means of appreciation, self-reflection, and extension beyond the classroom.  This literacy of course includes the effective use of technology both in delivery and production.

 

Again, through the modeling  and coursework in English, such as in EN320 Responding to Writing,  and through the understanding, professional practice and experience provided specifically by coursework in Teacher Education,  candidates acquire a firm grounding in the constructive response to learners,  in guiding learner efforts through rubrics and the adaptation of curricula to learner profiles, and in the selection, implementation, and interpretation of assessment tools and strategies whose results measure teaching effectiveness and compliance with standards, and are used to continually revise instructional design and delivery.
