Language Arts (Broadfield) Minor (MC-EA) Requirements

The Language Arts (Broadfield) minor is to be planned by the student in consultation with his or her advisor. A plan for the minor must be filed with the advisor at the time of the student's application for admission to the Teacher Education programs. Modifications in the plan may be made only with the consent of the advisor. The minor must be taken in connection with the Wisconsin MC-EA licensure (ages 6 - 12/13; grades 1 - 7/8th) which requires taking TED 407 and appropriate student teaching. The minor requires successful completion of one capstone: a portfolio of students' competencies. This minor equips a prospective teacher to support the Wisconsin Common Core English/Language Arts Standards. For questions, contact Dr. Harrison.
